Brandeis is full of wonderful people, and I don’t just mean students. Over the last few days I have paid a bit more attention to the Brandeis staff – they are so nice!
I was lost in Epstein, and two separate men cheerfully set me own my way. They joked around, and helped me find free toilet paper. They were exceedingly warm.
Later that day, I said good morning to two older gentlemen as I was getting a pancake for breakfast. They asked me how my day was, then started telling me how they were best buddies forever. We had a group hug and I just marveled at this sight of genuine male bonding.
Yesterday, I lost my phone in Usdan, and within 30 minutes I got an email telling me to show up and pick it up.
I understand that I am not conveying my point really well. I guess you had to be there to understand what I’m talking about. But I’m trying to say that the staff here at Brandeis – and I mean cafeteria workers, custodians, the behind-the-scenes people – are really sweet and really nice and it warms my heart.
