The Brandeis Academic Debate and Speech Society (BADASS) currently boasts the best team of the year and the second best club of the year after Yale University.

University seeks to avoid citation for website compliance

After an open letter from the federal Department of Education reminding university presidents about legal obligations to students and potential students with disabilities, Provost Steve Goldstein announced the creation of a university committee to determine Brandeis’ compliance with federal regulations pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act.

JBS emerges from tough rollout as successful program

The three summer 2011 Justice Brandeis Semester (JBS) programs completed a successful run Tuesday with student presentations detailing their accomplishments. The individual accomplishments of the programs—“JBS Mobile Applications and Game Development,” “JBS Goes South: Civil Rights and Racial Justice in Mississippi” and “JBS Filmmaking: From Script to Screen”—are, however, unremarkable; the remarkable thing is JBS’ […]

Warner Bros., what gives?

I’m not sure if Warner Bros is trying to annoy me but whatever they’re doing is working. Last week, they implemented a new digital copy system, and now they’re messing with “Harry Potter.” This week reports have been circulating that Warner Bros. intends to implement a moratorium on the sale of the “Harry Potter” films […]

At the Rose, an admission that art trumps money

Amid the paintings and sculptures on display in the recently reopened Rose Art Museum, there’s one piece of art that clearly doesn’t belong. It’s a small lawn sign that reads in bold red and white lettering, “ATM available inside.” In 2009, The Rose almost became a metaphorical ATM. But thanks to the design efforts of […]

Nineteen going on 30

I have always wanted to be 30. Since I was a little girl, all I ever wanted was to be an adult. I used to envy older women for being able to dress beautifully, put on their makeup and go to work or simply go have coffee with their friends. I envied their serious conversations, […]
