Death feels distant to most college students, but at a blood alcohol concentration of 0.30, it can become real.

The Reinharz years

When outgoing university President Jehuda Reinharz ascended to the presidency in 1994, the Brandeis endowment was a miniscule $194 million, with fewer than $10 million in unrestricted funds.

I can’t tell a ‘White’ lie: HTG production too long

The Hillel Theater Group’s production of Peter Shaffer’s “The White Liars and Black Comedy” was uneven and too long, with a few stand-out moments of hilarity.
