Located in the Boston area, Brandeis is a private liberal arts research university that has “a little bit of everything.” The school “gives students the freedom to explore both in and outside of the classroom” It has a (rightful) reputation for tough academics, particularly in the sciences, and this “pays off. Employers, grad schools, and certainly medical schools, know how tough the academics are.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
