Student Service Bureau (SSB)

SSB

The Brandeis Student Service Bureau (SSB) is one of the only student businesses on campus. Each of the vendors listed below have great customer service as well as reliability--most of us on staff even use them! As student leaders, the experience of working with off-campus vendors, creating marketing plans, and communicating with the Brandeis community as both peers and customers has truly been highlights of our time at Brandeis! It has also helped to prepare us with important customer service, staff management, and marketing skills so that when we leave Brandeis, we’ll be better leaders because of our SSB experience.

We have contracted each of the vendors below to meet our standards in working with our student body. We receive a percentage of all sales and these funds go back to our customers as well as the overall Brandeis community. Over the past year, we have used these funds to provide free events to the student body; a few giveaways; customer appreciation events; discounted trips to the New England Revolution, Boston Red Sox, and Lion King in Providence; and discounted tickets the Boston Aquarium, the Prudential Center Skywalk, Duck Tours, and much more!

Below are some descriptions of the services that we work to provide—you can also find more details on our website (www.ssb-brandeis.com). Also, in this packet, you can find information from our vendors. If you have questions, please reach out to them directly, or give us a call, email, or Facebook message!

Care Packages: This section of the letter is geared more towards the families out there. As you get ready to send your student off to a whole new world, wouldn’t it be nice if you could effortlessly send them handwritten notes and packages of goodies to let them that you’re still thinking about them? We have once again partnered with On Campus Marketing (OCM) to help you do just that! OCM offers a variety of care packages that can be ordered throughout the year. You can send your student a welcome package at the beginning of the year, a survival package at finals, or a package specially made for holiday celebrations!
