What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it at Brandeis! It's not always your typical school- we don't have a football team, and parties aren't huge. But the academics and support system are invaluable. I've had opportunities here that I've only dreamed about, and I know I couldn't have had them at a bigger school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brandeis is a wonderful university that truly promotes rigorous learning and academic achievement. Besides having met some amazing people - both students and faculty - with whom I was able to bond over common interests and from whom I learned a lot, I also gained insight into some fields that I never thought I would get the opportunity to study but that I found very interesting. The liberal arts philosophy of Brandeis allowed me, a math and computer science student, to take some classes in English writing, biology, psychology, Russian literature, and linguistics. Through my classes I formed a group of friends that I became very close with and who made me feel at home at Brandeis - 3000 miles away from my actual home - and met some incredible professors who not only taught me their subjects very well, but were also very kind and supportive in many ways. By talking to professors, graduate students, and fellow undergrads, I was able to get a chance to work as a research assistant in two different labs with two professors, which is an amazing opportunity for a first-year student. This allowed me not only to work hands-on with professionals and develop my skills, but also to see what the working environment of a computational linguist is - a field I'm considering going into for my career. When I came to Brandeis, I didn't know what computational linguistics is, but thanks to all the opportunities Brandeis provided me with I learned not only that it is a fascinating field, but also that Brandeis has one of the best graduate programs in this field in the entire country. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my decision to attend Brandeis and grateful to Brandeis and its community for making my experience here so worthwile and making me so excited to go back.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Campus facilities and housing are average, and renovations are regularly being made. Academics are amazing with small class sizes and teachers who are devoted to the student's success. The food could be better. Over all a great school because of the culture of the student body and faculty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a current student at Brandeis, during my time short time here, I have already seen a lot of improvement. With more admitted students coming in during the Fall, Brandeis has created new housing. Along with this, the campus facilities are always up-to-date and when issues arise, they are quickly resolved. The professors on campus are very present and active. The student life, while pro-focused on academics, is still present; especially during big events such as Springfest or FallFest. As a student, if approved, you have the ability to create any club you desire, and funding is provided by the Student Union. Speaking out against injustices is not uncommon at Brandeis. It is encouraged to state your opinion and fight for your beliefs. While the food options are not always vast, during the year Brandeis spices it up (pun intended) with chef competitions, holiday themed lunches and dinners, and other special treats. The Connivence store on campus is regularly stocked, and is a popular spot for students to go during the day and night. While athletics are not the center focus on campus, club athletics are very popular amongst students. Student jobs are also very popular and provide many students, especially Work Study students, the opportunity to earn money while on campus. In all, Brandeis is an excellent school to attend and when issues arise, it is a place where students are encouraged to speak their mind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brandeis University is a top institution where the opportunity to delve into academics is treated as precious. With this being said, extracurricular activities are plentiful and provide much needed breaks from academics. As an African-American student attending the predominantly white institution of Brandeis, most of the time, I feel included within the school culture and feel embraced by the inclusivity that Brandeis tries to foster. The campus is a quite rough terrain full of stairs and steep inclines/declines so be prepared to get some good calf workouts!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brandeis is pretty deserving of its name. There is a general belief in social responsibility that permeates the air. The academics are excellent and the professors are top of the line. There is always something to be proud of regarding the institution in terms of student, alumni, and professor accomplishments. As an alumni, I also think that they do a great job organizing interesting alumni events and networking opportunities of a pretty consistent basis. One of my only real qualms is that the on-campus food was kind of meh and the Castle living accommodations were scary, but they seem to be trying in the food department and the Castle got renovated just in time for my departure from the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that Brandeis is incredibly academic and social justice based, which is a personal breath of fresh air to meet people who are passionate and willing to fight for the same things you are. It is definitely one of the most accepting campuses I've ever been to regarding everything from culture to religion. It is really a safe place for those who feel judged, criticized, or want to pursue their dreams in the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school! If there were a negative I'd offer is that the university isn't really "visitor friendly". Parking is tough and having a tour of the campus is difficult. That aside, I love my classes, my professors and the Brandeis experience. My classmates are all sharp and engaging, as are the professors. I would strongly encourage anyone to apply. For those who find going to an Ivy League university important, consider that Brandeis is every bit as challenging and a degree from Brandeis opens a lot of doors. For those mature students who are either changing careers or attaining a Master's to enhance their careers, Brandeis offers many MS programs that can change the course of your professional careers. To parents of Ivy League aspirants, give this school serious consideration. You'll be happy you did!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Brandies, but probably for the same reason most people choose to come here and why they stay: the people. The number one thing that I hear is that people are nice. I don't mean that in the generic way that people say a shirt is nice. I mean that people take the time to get to know you. Their polite and care what happens to the people around them. They smile when they see you even if they don't know your name because it feels right to be kind​ to other people who go to school with you. The friends I have found here are some of the best people I have ever met. They care about their friends and the members of our community. They make Brandies and the world a better place just by existing. The food isn't the best, the teachers have their issues, the requirements are a lot, and the campus is a little outdated and missed matched, but that hasn't stopped me from loving it. I think that says a lot about a school. You want to be here even when things are hard. You want to be at Brandeis because it feels like home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Brandeis University offers students a variety of extracurricular activities and academic challenges to push students to achieve their full potential. The class sizes are generally small and the professors are concerned with student success. However, the residence halls on campus are sub-par; the roof caved in in one building and the heating is either non-existent or unbearable. Additionally, there are kosher options available on campus, which are often more appetizing that the non-kosher options on campus.
