Alumni Weekend 2019

This year during Alumni Weekend, we are celebrating Brandeis media! Whether you were involved in a communications-related group during your time at Brandeis or found your passion later in life, join us on campus May 31-June 2 for the first ever Media Reunion! Celebrate all Brandeis media, with a special recognition to the Justice at 70!

Throughout the weekend, visit the offices of The Justice, The Hoot, WBRS and SIMS (formally known as the Getz Media Lab). Chat with current students involved in these organizations and reminisce with fellow writers, photographers, editors, broadcasters, producers and more. See how the offices, publications and programs have evolved over the years, but still possess the same Brandeis enthusiasm and conviction that make the university what it is.
