Year: 2016

Involvement on campus: Senior Week Co-coordinator, Campus Center Team

What is your favorite part of your role? My favorite part about planning and working Senior Week is being able to create events for the senior who have worked so hard the past 4 years. Additionally, seeing their enjoyment in their last few days at Brandeis.

How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? It has given so many opportunities to learn more about the administration and appreciate how much work goes into events that are happening at Brandeis. It's given me leadership skills that I will be able to use in my life and job force later on.

Do you have a favorite memory of your time with Student Activities or at Brandeis? I have many memories but one of them is finally seeing all the hard work of senior week and how happy everyone is during my first year being coordinator.
