Your First Year
Your first year at a liberal arts university is a chance to explore exciting new subjects and to delve deeper into areas in which you already held an interest in high school. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and enter Brandeis with a spirit of excitement and exploration.
As a first year student, we recommend that you:
explore different subject areas that might be new for you
take the appropriate introductory courses for the major in your primary area of interest
make connections with other students, faculty and staff on campus
ask questions in the classroom and outside of the classroom
During your first year at Brandeis, meet with your professors, visit with academic advisors, attend a BUGS study session, talk to your Roosevelt Fellow and your Faculty Ambassador. We are all here to make your first year of Brandeis interesting and enjoyable.
If you are an undergraduate entering Brandeis in fall 2019 or after, the Brandeis Core will enrich your course of study and the life skills that foster personal and intellectual growth, and career success.
