Student Profile

Shriraj Shah '18

Major: Economics and Health: Science, Society, and Policy (HSSP)

Hometown: Queens, New York 

Involvement on Campus: I am involved in the Shapiro Campus Center ticket booth, TAMID, SACNAS, and the Shapiro Campus Center Team! 

What is your favorite part of your role? I enjoy meeting new people on a daily basis due to the job as well as having a family away from home (OHANA) with the rest of the team. 

How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? I have joined the Campus Center Team my sophomore year of college. I really enjoy working here because it allows me to know what is going on in the SCC and on campus and being able to be hands-on with any events that may occur now or in the future. 

What made you get involved? As a Posse Scholar, I came to Brandeis University for 2 weeks prior to my first year. When I came to Brandeis that summer, there wasn't anyone on campus to assist me to where I needed to go or what I needed to do. I felt lost. When I entered the SCC, the summer supervisor at the time, Joel Burt-Miller assisted me and allowed me to feel comfortable in that environment. I knew that I wanted to be in that role one day for incoming students and parents.

Campus Center Team

The Campus Center Team functions as the operating staff of the Shapiro Campus Center and parts of the Usdan Student Center. The students are easily recognized by their bright red or orange uniforms and huge smiles. Along with providing customer service and information to thousands of visitors a year, the team also helps to support logistical and technical aspects of events in the Shapiro Campus Center.

What Services are Provided?

At the Info Booth, students can borrow dry erase markers for the conference and study rooms (as available), pick up campus and MBTA maps, pick up and return departmental forms, gain access to locked conference rooms, and gain answers to general questions.  In addition, clubs can borrow equipment reserved through the Department of Student Activities.

What Else Do They Do?

Each supervisor on the team has an additional responsibility in addition to their daily task. Such responsibilities include programming, liaison for clubs and commuters, and the management of the Game Room. Check back for updates of projects they are working on that will impact you, the students!
