“Brandeis matters. Brandeis was the place, 3,000 miles away from home, where I spent the most formative years of my life, learning about independence, friendship, snow storms and love. Brandeis continues to provide alumni with resources, friendships and networking opportunities. It has influenced and guided my personal and professional endeavors. I volunteer to show my appreciation to a school that continues to support me, to give other alumni opportunities to connect with Brandeis and to share my passion for our alma mater.”
