Aaron Finkel is the 2016-2017 Massell Quad Senator. He’s from sunny Miami, FL, and expects to be studying either politics, philosophy, English, music, or all four! (Why not? It's Brandeis!) After his undergraduate years, he plans to attend law school. Aaron is both thrilled to be a member of such an outstanding community, and humbled by the opportunity to serve the student body. Brandeis is entering an exciting new era. The school has new administrators, new campus facilities, new and ambitious plans for the future, and at the same time, new challenges. Brandeisians all come with innovative ideas and perspectives, and it’s the role of the Student Union to make their dreams a reality. Throughout his time in the Union, Aaron will do his best to address the issues that are important to the student body, especially to students living within Massell’s four residence halls. Come see him in his office hours, email him, or write to him on social media.
