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 :)
Pledge to Make a Difference
Since 1987, the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility has been offered at colleges and universities throughout the world.
