Brandeis welcomes the class of 2027

In an email sent to Brandeis students, faculty and staff on Aug. 29, President Ron Liebowitz welcomed everyone back to campus for the coming year. He mentioned that, as we begin Brandeis’ 75th year, he is “very much looking forward to the start of classes later this week, as we begin another semester of teaching and learning, research and spending time with each other in community.”

He added that he is “especially happy to welcome our newest students. I encourage you to seek out your professors and staff members in your pursuit of knowledge, and in finding ways to settle in as a member of our tightly-knit family. I am confident that our gifted and empathetic staff and faculty will challenge and support you as they have generation after generation of Brandeisians.”

He also noted Brandeis’ founding values, noting that Brandeis has been a “community rooted in purpose, guided by our founding Jewish values of openness and inclusivity, a reverence for learning, an emphasis on critical thinking and a commitment to repairing the world.” for 75 years now.

President Liebowitz also invited community members to register for the main event of the 75th anniversary celebration, the “75th Anniversary Weekend,” which will take place from Oct. 13-15 later this year. It will include athletics homecoming, a class reunion, parents weekend and more. The event carries no registration fee for faculty, staff, children under 12 and students, but adults must pay $25 to attend (if they are not able to obtain a fee waiver).

BrandeisNOW also published an article detailing the demographics of the incoming class. The Class of 2027 has a total expected enrollment of 873 students, bringing the total undergraduate population to 3,591 students total.
