Involvement on Campus: Student Events
What is your favorite part of Student Events? I love being at events and executing things I have planned. Also seeing people I have never met before coming to events and enjoying them.
How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? My experience at Brandeis has been completely shaped by my involvement in Student Events. It has made me feel so involved in campus and has brought me into contact with students and staff on campus I might never have meet, or formed such a bond with if I weren't involved. Student Events takes up a lot of my time but it is completely worth it.
Do you have a favorite memory of your time with Student Activities or at Brandeis? Last semester was my first time as Director of Social Events and I planed with others Bernstein Spirit Week. I loved seeing the same faces over and over at our events, having fun and hanging out with friends!
