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