Student Voices

“Every volunteer experience has expanded my passion for social justice and enabled me to become an advocate for international justice… By volunteering at various organizations, I adopted an important philosophy, “Listen, Learn, and Respond.” By following this philosophy, I helped make small and large differences in the lives of individuals that are often ignored by society.” ~Heather Yoon '15

"Putting a smile on the faces of those I help is the reason I keep on giving." ~Sabrina Libretti '15

"Volunteers know when to help others succeed." ~Janice Vazquez '15

Celebration of Service 2016

Used by Media Technology Services

Join us for the 7th Annual Celebration of Service here at Brandeis! This community-wide tradition marks a special opportunity for students, faculty, staff and other members of our community to celebrate each other's remarkable passion for community service. Furthermore, it is a moment to reflect on what makes our campus so special. As a volunteer, you deserve to be celebrated. Please join us for a fun night of dining and entertainment and celebrate the impact you or a friend has made on the community.  Mark your calendar for Monday, May 2 at 7:00pm in the Faculty Club to join us in this year's festivities.

The event will feature semi-formal dress, elected guest-speakers, free appetizers and beverages, a presentation to Commitment to Service Awards honorees, and much more. There will be Kosher and Vegetarian options available.

We encourage all students to invite their faculty, staff, and peers to celebrate their dedication to our community. This is a truly wonderful event that marks an important tradition on our campus. If you have questions please email

Get excited for an epic event and we look forward to celebrating YOU and BRANDEIS on May 2.  

The Celebration of Service is co-sponsored by the Department of Community Service, Waltham Group and Sodexo.
