Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends


  • Five event attendees stand together, holding a Brandeis pennant, with JetBlue Park in the background.
    Alumni and guests enjoyed a 2018 spring training baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros at JetBlue Park in Ft. Myers.
  • Five people, including the event speaker and hosts, stand next to each other in front of a window with a view of green plants and trees.
    The club’s January 2020 Faculty in the Field event featured a talk by Dr. Andrew Kolodny, MD (center), senior scientist and medical director of Brandeis’ Opioid Policy Research Collaborative. Samara ’95 and Peter Bober hosted the event at their home in Hollywood.

More than 1,800 Brandeisians live in the Sunshine State year-round and are joined by alumni snowbirds during the winter months. The largest concentration of alumni is in the southeastern part of the state, and the Alumni Club of South Florida serves more than 1,100 alumni from Key West up to Jupiter. The club’s annual Faculty in the Field event takes place in January and brings alumni, parents and friends together for a talk by a Brandeis faculty member or administrator.

Whether you are new to Florida or have lived here for many years, and whether you live here year-round or seasonally, we welcome you to join our regional leadership team to plan programs that will bring Brandeisians together. Please connect with us through our Facebook group.

Due to COVID-19, we can't host in-person events until further notice. In the meantime, please join us on Zoom for a wide variety of virtual alumni events.
