What's the tea?

On March 12, Moody St. gained an exciting new store: Kung Fu Tea. This store specializes in bubble tea, offering a wide variety of flavors and variations of the popular beverage. The bubble tea craze has recently dominated the beverage world of the United States. Popular restaurants, including the many Thai food locations scattered around the Waltham area, incorporate variations of this Taiwanese drink into menus, but those are often substandard compared to that of specialty shops. This new addition to the Waltham community has not disappointed the boba-fanatics of Brandeis.


Ballin' in Levin

From the “Cupid Shuffle” to “God’s Plan,” Levin Ballroom was filled with laughter, music and chatter on Saturday night. Attendees spent the night flitting between the dance floor, photo booth and chocolate fountains during the Eclipse Ball, the annual formal event organized by the Campus Activities Board. 


Behind the scenes

On April 4, Brandeis will present its third TEDx event at the Shapiro Campus Center Theater. According to TEDxBrandeisUniversity’s website, “A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.” The content of all the TED talks will be different and independent of one another and will provide fresh perspectives on various topics. In an effort to expand on different ways of thinking, this year’s theme is “past perspectives, future minds.” This year’s speakers include Abeer Pamuk M.A.’22, Ben Greene ’21, Nakul Srinivas ’21, Shaquan McDowell ’18 and R Matthews ’19.

Spiritual asylum

Diversity in debate

50 years of AAAS: remembering a resistance

The Department of African and African American Studies (AAAS), established on April 24, 1969, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this week, but the history of Black students and their influence at Brandeis existed long before then. The legacy of Black intellectuals like Ralph Bunche — scholar, eventual Nobel Peace Prize recipient and Brandeis’ first convocation speaker — and Brandeis’ first Black graduate Herman Hemingway ’53, founder of the University’s  NAACP chapter, helped Brandeis establish its reputation as an institution of social change.  


Shaping her own

Even though Morton describes working in the dining hall as a “privilege,” she is quick to recognize the fact that for many students – including herself – working while in college is necessary.
