Spotlight on Sugar

At the 88th  annual Academy Awards last Sunday, Brandeis alumus Michael Sugar ’95 stepped onto the stage at the Dolby Theater to accept the Academy Award for “Spotlight,” which won Best Picture as well as Best Screenplay that night. “Spotlight” follows the true story of the Boston Globe’s Spotlight Team of journalists who investigated the Boston Catholic Church sex abuse scandal.

Building records, not breaking them

Brandeis students exhibit talent in all areas — including music. With a trek to Slosberg Music Center, a night at Chomondeley’s Coffee House or a walk by the chapels, that becomes clear.

AOK-O gets an A plus

“The themes — the human pain, suffering, passions and desires that we have in our world — are the very same ones that the ancient Greek and Romans had,” Professor Ann Olga Koloski-Ostrow (CLAS) explained in an interview with the Justice.

Writings from battle
