What is your favorite part of being Senior Week Co-Coordinator? My favorite part of my role is watching everything come together... and the smiling seniors :)

How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? This has not only given me a chance to give back to the senior class, but it has also given me a chance to meet new people and make new friends. The networking experience is a wonderful one!

What made you get involved? I got involved to give back to the senior class and to make sure that their last days as undergrads at Brandeis University were memorable :)

The Junior/Senior Formal is always a big night for Brandeis juniors and seniors as they dress up and enjoy a night of dancing, dining and celebrating during the spring semester! 

The Formal is held annually for the Junior and Senior classes and their guests.  The event is traditionally held off campus during the spring semester.  The Formal is planned by two student coordinators and a committee of student leaders, who are advised by the Department of Student Activities.

Tickets typically include transportation, hors d'oeuvres, dinner (kosher options available) and dancing at one of the premiere reception facilities in New England.

You must be a Junior or Senior to purchase tickets. Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable. Attendees will need to identify bus time, table number and meal type at time of purchase.
