Brandeis: A Family Tradition3 generations of a Brandeis Legacy family
The Brandeis Legacy Program honors alumni whose children and/or grandchildren have made attending Brandeis a family tradition. The Office of Alumni Relations is proud to recognize the hundreds of families who share generational ties to their alma mater.

Our relationship with our legacy alumni is most important and we take special care in reviewing admissions applications submitted by their family members, so let us know that your child or grandchild is considering Brandeis.  For more information regarding the admissions process, please contact Sara Lodgen '14, Legacy Program Liaison and Assistant Director of Admissions.

We encourage you and your student to stay connected through a few special events happening throughout the year:
  • October - Annual Family Weekend Legacy Brunch
