Connecting Cultures on Campus

This week, justFeatures sat down with Dan Truong ’15, who is starting Brandeis’ newest campus publication—a magazine called Jaded. The magazine’s first issue, forthcoming this semester, will feature works of art and creative writing by students, faculty and staff centered around the theme of the immigrant experience.

The Hassenfeld family name is one that Brandeis students are quite familiar with. It can be found written in silver lacquer on the front of a handful of buildings around campus.


To the Netherlands, from Rabb

In spring 2015, Brandeis English Prof. Dawn Skorczewski (ENG) will teach an innovative class that combines her interest in Holocaust writing and passion for collaborative learning in a course titled “The International Legacy of Anne Frank.” The course is designed to allow Brandeis students to interact directly with students and faculty in the Netherlands.

Prof. Dan Perlman’s (BIOL) new office has two desks and a beach ball-sized inflatable globe. Sunlight pours in from the huge windows that line the wall.


A day in Usdan

Sodexo has been quite the hot-button topic on campus as of late. Speculation as to how the company treats its workers as well as the changes to campus meal plan policies has sparked a passionate discourse regarding the company’s standing.


A unified spectrum

Around this time last year, students from different LGBTQ+ groups across campus came together with a clear goal in mind: to create a Gender and Sexuality Center with a full-time program coordinator.
