“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.”

Brandeis alumni gathered for a day of fresh air, apple picking and family fun at Butler’s Orchard in Germantown, MD on September 14.... Guests enjoyed tractor rides, pick your own apples, beautiful weather and a chance to learn about the orchard and crops from one of Butler’s own farmers. The Brandeis group met after picking to take a few group photos as they snacked on home baked cookies from the orchard’s farm market. Erika Schwartz ’96 and Neal Orringer ’98 chaired this event.
