            Brandeis allowed me to shape my education to suit my unique needs. I was in my 30s when I showed up as an undergrad. I understood critical thinking: I needed to get an education. From the first day I toured the place till my graduation, I had staff and administrators nearby who cared whether I was successful or not. They knew me by name, asked about my daughter, and took the time to learn why I had to do things differently, and then suggested what I could do to make it happen. Everyone was open to the challenge. I asked for a meeting once with the President, and it was granted. The administrators could have been more supportive of non-Israeli perspectives, but most of the professors were as open-minded and contemporary as I needed them to be.

            I attended the Rabb School of Continuing Studies and learned a lot. The teachers are real pros, not crusty academics. They know what you need to know to be a software engineering professional because they are all current industry professionals at the top of their fields. Highly recommended.

            I felt my years at Brandeis tested my critical and creative thinking. The university encouraged all students to think for themselves. While students may have had differing opinions, we each had the opportunity to voice them in a safe and respectful environment. I liked the small class sizes and the accessibility to professors as well as other bright students. To this day, I feel like I have benefited from my Brandeis liberal arts education.
