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