Meet the Staff: Becca Wiser ’19

Name: Becca Wiser

Year: 2019

Hometown: South Florida

Majors: I’m planning on creating an IIM about Nutrition and Food Studies

Her Campus: What attracted you to Brandeis?

Becca Wiser: I loved the school’s tight-knit community, stance on social justice, the leadership and involvement opportunities it presented, and its close proximity to the city.

HC: What has been your favorite Brandeis memory so far?

BW: Spending snow days (1) with my friends. I hadn’t experienced winter before coming to Massachusetts (as noted earlier, I’m a Florida girl!), so it was really exciting for me.

HC: What advice do you have for incoming first years?

BW: Try not to overthink everything. College seems super intimidating, but I promise it gets very familiar and normal. Just trust that everything will work out!

HC: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

BW: I’d love to have a thriving career helping people live healthier and happier lives. I hope that by then, I will have traveled, explored, and become a very independent, resourceful woman. I’d also love to start a family relatively young. Overall,  I just want to be very happy and fulfilled (and depending on what’s  important to me at that stage in my life, these could all change).

Quick Facts: I’m vegan, I have two sisters (one’s my twin), I love running, writing, and exploring new places.  

Secret Talent: I’ve been told I’m very good at packing suitcases ;) So if you need to magically fit a LOT of stuff in your luggage, you now know who to come to!

Favorite Movie: Bridget Jones’ Diary

Favorite Spot on Campus: Massel pond

Favorite Song of the Moment: Gwen Stefani’s “Make Me Like you”

Favorite Boston Attraction: Walking around Boston Common (especially in the fall)

Favorite Class at Brandeis: Women and American Pop Culture

Prized Possession: Anything food related!
