What is Spring without Brostein Week at Brandeis?! Bronstein is a week where Brandeis students celebrate life,happiness and support within and outside of Brandeis campus. From the beginning of his Brandeis career in 1967 until his retirement, Professor Leo Bronstein, inspired students through his lifestyle and teachings to appreciate and enjoy all facets of life. So in his honour each year, Brandeis Student Events creates a week of memorable and exciting events for students to join together in remembrance and celebration of life and happiness. In 2012, we took an American Road Trip, last year we Camped Out and this year we’re taking you back through your favorite decades!
We’re welcoming Throwback Bronstein, celebrating your most awesome memories from the 2000’s and beyond. Join us Sunday to kick off Bronstein with Brandeis’s inaugural 5k Color Run: Good in Motion. All activities are free and open to Brandeis students. Just stop by any or all and Throwback with Bronstein this week!
