HC Brandeis' Favorite Study Snacks


Let’s face it; no one enjoys studying for finals. However, late night library cram sessions can be tremendously improved if you have delicious and nutritious snacks that provide you with stamina to power through those papers, readings and flashcards. When it comes to finals study snacks, Her Campus Brandeis is loyal to three in particular: popchips, Luna Bars and Chipotle. Here’s why these foods fuel us collegeiettes during finals.

LUNA Bars: LUNA bars are the first nutrition bars specially formulated with a woman’s needs in mind. They help nourish women throughout their busy days and lives by providing valuable nutrients women often lack, such as folic acid, calcium, iron, vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals, which are essential to a women’s everyday needs. Additionally, they come in a variety of delicious flavors and satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt because they are less than 200 calories. You can even pick them up in the C-Store!

popchips: popchips make for an ideal study snack because they have all the deliciousness of potato chips without the guilt! When studying, it is easy to lose track of how much you are eating because you are multi-tasking. Before you know it you have eaten an entire bag of chips and feel gross afterward because they are fried (yuck!). Next time you are craving a salty snack, opt for popchips. They are not only delicious but are also healthier than normal potato chips since they have half of the fat while still retaining the delicious salty potato flavor.

We hear you are a photographer for The Justice. When did you become interested in photography?

I was into the glitz and glamour of fancy cameras and wanted to have one like the grown ups. So I got my first one...a toy camera that squirts water

What are your favorite events to photograph?

I'm interested in people and self-expression, and remember shooting at my first soccer game trying to capture the players' intensity. I enjoy capturing people in their natural state, doing everyday things that express raw emotions and moods. Also, any setting where I can capture different parts of the day (sunrise/sunset) together with the presence of nature and scenery is ideal.

What is J Street and what are some of your responsibilities as president of the organization?

It’s an organization that is dedicated to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a two-state solution and active American engagement. As a co-president, I get to empower other student leaders and members of the Brandeis community who are passionate about the issue, engage in educational events and take action around the conflict on our campus community.

Andrea's Airport Style


I do my fair share of traveling. Since my flights are usually long, comfort is key when it comes to my airport style. After some trial and error, I have finally developed a fool proof go to outfit that is fashionable and not pj's, slippers, and a robe. If you are traveling this break then you might consider implementing some of these tips (minus the two jackets).

Party on with these helpful tips from PERC


With Purim and St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, PERC (Peer’s Educating about Responsible Choices) wants to give you the inside scoop on how to stay safe, be smart, and HAVE FUN! Here are some tips to ensure you have an enjoyable weekend. 


Having food in your stomach before you drink alcohol decreases your chance of getting sick. Certain foods that are high in carbs, fat, and protein are better to eat if you're drinking because they help absorb the alcohol into your system. Hamantaschen are a great sweet option!  


Alcohol dehydrates your body, which causes painful headaches and hangovers! Make sure to drink plenty of WATER in order to keep yourself from feeling sick! If you find yourself having to pee a lot after you’ve been drinking, it means your blood alcohol level is increasing, so you need lots of water!!


Consuming Tylenol and alcohol will destroy your liver, so if you have a headache the night of a party, you are better off with Advil!


Mixing marijuana and alcohol is VERY DANGEROUS and the effects are unpredictable!
