Each fall semester, Brandeis hosts multiple rounds of what it has coined “Fall for Brandeis Days.” This year, there are a total of five Fall for Brandeis Days throughout the semester, where prospective students can take a tour of the campus, learn about academics at Brandeis and much more.
Fall for Brandeis Days this year were held on Friday, Sept. 22 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 1 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The upcoming dates are Saturday, Oct. 7 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
During Fall for Brandeis Day, each session starts with event registration in the Shapiro Campus Center (SCC), moving on to a general information session, followed by a campus tour and rounding out with an academics presentation.
According to the Brandeis Admissions page, “The program starts with an information session led by an admissions counselor to give you an overview of our academics and community, as well as the application process. Current students will take you on a tour of campus, sharing their experiences as Brandeis students, and you’ll also hear from faculty to learn more about the academic experience at Brandeis. You can also attend Shabbat dinner (all are welcome!) and other campus events.”
Fall for Brandeis Days are a great way for prospective students to get a sense of the community at Brandeis. As they have the ability to attend on-campus events, it gives students a chance to fully immerse themselves in the Brandeis experience. Prospective students have the ability to ask both students and faculty questions about their experiences at Brandeis, and connect with other prospective students also taking advantage of Fall for Brandeis Days.
While Fall for Brandeis Days are certainly a great opportunity to explore the campus and get a feel for the university, Brandeis offers prospective students a plethora of opportunities to engage before and after applying. Students can schedule separate information sessions and campus tours not during Fall for Brandeis Days that cover similar ground. Brandeis also offers virtual information sessions and panels with admissions counselors and current students for those unable to attend in-person events. Students can also schedule an interview with admissions counselors and student admissions fellows to ask further questions about the admissions process. Students can also connect with current students using “Connect” to virtually chat and ask questions. Finally, Brandeis offers a 3D touring option to get a more in-depth look at the campus.
In order to learn more about opportunities for prospective Brandeis students, you can use the Brandeis Admissions website and Instagram as a resource, as well as the official Brandeis University website and Instagram.
