Fall Index

Nothing beats fall in New England — except fall at Brandeis! 

Fall Fest Weekend, scheduled for October 27–31, 2016, is the annual family weekend program that highlights the life your student is creating at Brandeis. 

For more than 65 years, students have come to Brandeis to learn, become leaders and make their mark. Fall Fest Weekend invites friends and family to the Brandeis community to learn more about what our institution offers. This weekend provides visitors the opportunity to spend quality time with family while attending on- and off-campus events to get a taste of the Brandeis experience. 

Get excited! This year's theme is Choosing Your Own Brandeis Adventure!

The Fall Fest Core Committee has been planning a fun and exciting weekend! We look forward to seeing you here!
