Use this blog to check out what we’re doing! Below is a small welcome from each Core member, along with a little blurb of what they are up to. Check it out! Feel free to email with any questions/concerns! Enjoy your summers and see you in August!                – Herbie Rosen

Hello New Students!
My name is Marc Eder and I am a member of the Core Committee planning New Student Orientation for the fall. Along with my fellow Core members, we are designing what we believe will be the most exciting Orientation yet! There will be games, prizes, speakers, food, and boat cruises around Boston (not to mention your awesome Orientation Leaders!). I hope this email finds you all well and enjoying your summer. We can’t wait to meet you all this August! See you all then! – Marc Eder

Hey New Students! My name’s Jordan and I’ve got all sorts of fun things I’m working on for Orientation! For example, I’m planning a huge carnival with all sorts of fun activities like minigolf, food, giveaway and a raffle among other things. I am also planning a comedy night featuring Brandeis graduates such as Josh Gondelman (you should look him up)! I’ve been working on some other social events as well as an entertaining skit to help teach the integrity values we have at Brandeis. Can’t wait to see you guys in August!- Jordan Warsoff

Hey New Students! I hope all of you are getting excited about Orientation and the beginning of your college careers! My name is Sarah Watt and I am helping plan a variety of great programs for y’all to enjoy during Orientation! As of now the social programs that I am heading are really beginning to take shape. One program will feature a feast consisting of food from some of Waltham’s finest eateries, along with fun activities and prizes! Another program will take place in your quads and will give you a chance to mix with your fellow quadmates and CAs while sipping on fresh iced coffee or lemonade. Get excited! It’s going to be great! – Sarah Watt

Hi new students!I am so excited to see you all in a couple of months, and wanted to get you some information on what I am doing this summer. I am working on a session about academic advising at Brandeis, a global awareness program, and the MOSAIC program that begins during orientation but continues throughout the year. Academic advising is a really big part of what makes Brandeis so unique. The program will try and give you all a better sense of the people who are there for you throughout your time at Brandeis. The global awareness program will be exploring global issues and diversity. I am trying to make an interactive activity so you learn about issues and, more importantly, how you can make a difference.  More info on MOSAIC coming soon! I hope you are all super excited for what I know will be an amazing Orientation! – Jeremy Weinberg
