What is your favorite part of your role? "I love how flexible this role requires me to be. One day I could be designing a flyer for an upcoming event, and the next I could be searching the Waltham Group office for paint in that one particular color. There is truly never a dull moment!"

What made you get involved? "I became involved in the Department of Student Activities because the work that this department does is so valuable to the campus community. From designing awesome events, to ensuring that club leaders are able to run their programs, the Department of Student Activities does it all!"

Do you have a favorite memory of your time with Student Activities or at Brandeis? "On my first day of work, Kelly and Lucas, two staff members, offered to go help move someone’s refrigerator out of a room on the top floor of the Shapiro dorm. That experience showed me that the people at the Department of Student Activities are truly up for helping students in any way they can – even if it means manual labor!"
