How long have you worked with the Department of Student Activities? 3 years
What is your favorite part of your role? My favorite part of the role was interacting with both the student body and the staff. I felt like I was a link between the two. I can remember multiple times where I was just talking to a friend about whatever and I referred them to a student activity program or service.
Do you have a favorite memory of your time with Student Activities or at Brandeis?
My favorite memory with Student Activities was going laser tag with the Campus Center Team. It was a great bonding experience with friends and co-workers.
Campus Center Team
