What is your favorite part of your role? I really love working and hanging out with the members of the Campus Center Team. We are all from different backgrounds with different majors, interests and personalities. They always make me laugh, learn more, and think of things differently. If it were not for CCT, I probably would not have gotten as close with these phenomenal and supportive individuals. I truly cherish our moments together. 

How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? The CCT helps me stay inform about useful resources, opportunities and events. Due to this, I am able to inform my friends and peers about how they can effectively utilize these resources, opportunities and events! I love being able to help others.  

What made you get involved? I got involved with CCT because I wanted to give back to the Brandeis campus the same way the students did before me. They established such a warm, welcoming and fun environment and I want to perpetuate that for others.
