Bringing lax back

In 2012, when Eric Haavind-Berman ’15 and James Hayward ’16 arrived on campus, Haavind-Berman as a transfer and Hayward as a first- year, they were disappointed to find that their favorite sport, lacrosse, did not have a club team.

Imagine being asked to become a pen pal with a prisoner on death row. Would you accept the offer, or shove it off as a ridiculous suggestion? This question became real for those in Levin Ballroom last Thursday night as a result of the experiences and thoughts shared by Sister Helen Prejean, a nun from New Orleans, during a lecture titled "Dead Man Still Walking: A First Hand Account of Death Row." The Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism along with 12 other campus groups sponsored the event as a part of this year's 'Deis Impact.

Gardens grow indoors

Many people simply eat their food and don't know or understand where it comes from. Jennifer Mandelbaum '14 has planned an initiative she hopes will cultivate an appreciation among the campus community for locally grown and home grown products. The initiative, co-sponsored by Health, Science, Society and Policy Department and the Brandeis Pluralism Alliance, with additional help from 'DeisBikes and Sodexo, is known as Brandeis Garden Week.
