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.

    A school with very very genuine people who care. Although the school is 40% Jewish, the rest of the student body is very diversed. For such a young university, the network and the amount of people that have attended brandeis and our doing very amazing things, holding important positions is quite remarkable.

    Brandeis has an excellent academic environment. Whether you are on the humanities side of the spectrum or want to be a doctor, Brandeis has a plethora of resources that will get you into top tier working and post grad positions. Personally, I feel that the social life at Brandeis isn't as exciting as what you may find at a state college, but I will say that, like the school, it's growing every day.
