American Studies Major Helps Earn Brandeis Finalist Spot on Today Show

September 20th, 2012

Brandeis is one of six finalists for a live broadcast on The Today Show, and senior Rachel Nelson, an American Studies and Business and Journalism minor, is one of the driving forces behind the push. Seniors Nelson and Reed Zukerman produced this video for a Today-Show sponsored contest to bring Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Clark, the show’s co-hosts, to Brandeis for a live, one-hour broadcast.

The push to catapult Brandeis in the lead is on, from emails, tweets and Facebook postings generated by students and senior administration officials to articles chronicling the drive.

Voting for the six finalists, which include Brandeis, Ohio State, University of Tennessee, Creighton, University of South Florida and Syracuse, closes September 21 at 3 p.m.
