This is Lexi Kriss '11; the Academic Coordinator of Orientation. I wanted to share a quote with you from Oscar that I really enjoyed and thought was a great jumping off point for starting a discussion about the book and welcoming you to Brandeis.
" - a student was something else altogether, an agent for change, a vibrating quantum string in the staid Newtonian universe" (Diaz, 110).
I love this description because I feel it captures the power of students and their potential impact. It is possible for every student that enters Brandeis to make a change, a difference, a smile... can't wait to hear what you think.
