Student & Graduate Reviews (6)

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2012

Brandeis University is a superior research university with a unique, quirky culture (sort of brainy/nerdy and Jewish...) The typical student has two majors and a minor (some have triple majors or double/double), identifies as Jewish in some way, identifies as socially awkward in some way, and is strongly committed to social justice. The professors are outstanding, experienced and respected in their fields. The religious culture on campus doesn't affect the academic experience except insofar as classes are not held on Jewish holidays. The Jewish and non-Jewish students tend to mingle and get along very well, although there is always conflict and controversy among competing student groups with regard to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. There is a wide variety of extracurricular activities available on campus, including some truly unique niche ones! As an alumna, I'm very satisfied with my college experience, but I do recommend visiting campus before you make a decision.

Brandeis is a very academically challenging school; however, you will never find a group of people who are more invested in each others' success.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2008

Great place to go. Classes were small, taught by professors not grad students. Faculty were always available and responded to your individual needs. Lots of activities, shuttle to Boston. Dorms and food were great, students were friendly.

Degree: Health Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Brandeis University is an amazing place to go to college - I found myself constantly surrounded by ambitious, driven, and intelligent people who pushed me even further to succeed. Academics are definitely challenging and the atmosphere is competitive, but that only serves as encouragement to push yourself to become the best person you can be. The professors at Brandeis are some of the best in the world, as well. As a student at Brandeis, you will be under the mentorship of arguably some of the smartest people you will ever meet. Overall, I would go here again if could. Since I can't, I would recommend that others do!
