“I have great memories of Brandeis. It is where I met many of my closest friends and my wife! When the opportunity to volunteer presented itself, it was an easy decision. As club president, I have enjoyed meeting new people, reconnecting with old friends and interviewing prospective freshmen. It has been great sharing my enthusiasm for Brandeis with others.”
