Brandeis University is a private, nonsectarian institution founded by the Jewish community and named after the Supreme Court’s first Jewish justice. The 235-acre campus is located in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, and home to more than 100 academic and residential buildings. As a research university, Brandeis' motto of "Truth, Even Unto Its Innermost Parts" is upheld in the number of centers and institutes dotting its campus, which have also made it a priority to include undergraduate students. Brandeis was in its 13th year when it received Phi Beta Kappa recognition, making it the youngest university to do so, and the Heller School for Social Policy and Management is the first school in the US to combine social welfare and policy.

What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
Brandeis is an all inclusive school with everything a student could wish for. Busting at the seams with student diversity, clubs of all kinds, and professors that you can approach at almost any time, the smaller community of Brandeis University is perfect for those who want to do it all. The opportunities for study and involvement in the campus and surrounding community are immense, and you will never have a moment where you find yourself without options of entertainment or participation in the school or the surrounding area.
in three sentences, brandeis is academically rigorous - the science courses in particular are taught at a much higher level here than at other schools. the social life is atrocious because parties end early and are usually pretty lame but the people at brandeis are really friendly and approachable (which you don't get at bigger schools). and lastly, the professors are incredibly qualified and if one was taking advantage of their education, they would be bugging their professors often.
