Eliana’s Advice: Help with odors

Dear Eliana, When I got back to my room after the break, I discovered an unsettling smell. Imagine the corresponding smell to an absolutely terrible audition, and that’s what I have to try to sleep in. I figured I left some food somewhere that had gone bad, but after looking everywhere in my room, I […]


Violence should not limit speech

We live in a troubled time, there’s no doubt about that. We find ourselves the targets of terror, a terror the United States and other nations have been facing for a few decades now. The most recent attacks on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and the ensuing terror spree that followed, along with the recent […]


Dress to succeed

Imagine yourself in a professional outfit: collared shirt, slacks and blazer. Now imagine you’re at a room full of other college students dressed like that, say at a career and internship fair. Employers stand behind a table, and they know exactly why all these young adults are dressed so well. They know what they have […]


Professors need to respect student vacations

Vacation. A rarity for college students, the vacation lasts for three or so weeks between fall and spring semesters and three months over the summer. After college, the prolonged vacation becomes even rarer than a $3 bill or even finding Santa on Christmas Eve. It is supposed to be a time to recharge, relax and […]


Univ. needs to provide more time to reacclimate to student life

As the ball dropped in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and the calendar moved from December into January, I realized that I had to be back at college in less than two weeks. Feeling like I only got home a week prior, I was certainly not looking forward to having to head back to […]


Univ. should do more to integrate midyear class

As we stream back to Brandeis this winter, happy with memories of home, life is breathed back into our lovely campus. For almost a month now, Brandeis students have been enjoying family meals, fun vacations or simply the relaxation of having nothing to prepare for or worry about. Well, most of us. The beginning of […]


In defense of Uber

Here at Brandeis, we face both the positives and the negatives of living on a suburban campus, relatively disconnected from the bustle of city life. It’s a peaceful and semi-isolated existence, yet to get off campus to other nearby areas, it can sometimes be a challenge. As helpful as taxis can be, more and more […]


Family transcends religious boundaries

Beatrice W. Hudson, known to me as Be Be, was my great-grandmother. She was one of the strongest, and most caring people I have ever met. Born May 10, 1918, in Suffolk, Virginia, she was the oldest of 13, and played a major part in raising her many siblings. Being a black woman in the […]


Brandeis should open up to Christmas

After Thanksgiving, and unfortunately even earlier, after Halloween, society turns to the next big holiday: Christmas. The holiday commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, the day that, according to Christian belief, God came into the world to save mankind. Other holidays are celebrated around the same time: Chanukah memorializes the Second Temple’s reclaiming by the […]


Brandeis research opportunities offer new perspectives

So I got a new job as an assistant in the preparatory area of a biology lab the other day. Needless to say, I was pretty stoked to get some exposure to the research facilities located within a university that’s specifically known for conducting original research. Now, I’m aware there’s a pretty high concentration of […]
