Tax Help 101

Mark Metevier from Student Activities wrote:

[…] I have found that a shocking number of our students do not know they have to file a federal and a state(s) tax return. HR Block has generously agreed to come onto campus on Wednesday at 3:00 PM in the SCC Multipurpose Room for a Tax Help Session. There will be a short presentation on what students should look out for as first time file-ers/ as student file-ers and of course there will be a questions and answer part. […] I had this presentation for my student employees last year and it was a huge help for all of them. I strongly suggest that all student [employees] attend.

New building approaching completion

Mentoring Women in Science
The next meeting of the women in science group at Brandeis will focus on a discussion of the role of mentoring in the career of women scientists.  Ruth Charney and Eve Marder will lead the group in talking about how to seek out mentors at important junctures in a woman’s career, what to expect from a mentor, and how to best create a support system that reinforces the goals of women scientists.

Please email Katie with any questions.
