Brandeis senior Joanna Schorr writes in the school newspaper about the Rose Art Museum controversy and how it has changed the way people respond to her outside Waltham.
"When I applied to Brandeis, this University was noted as one of the most up-and-coming universities in the United States," she writes. "I was hugely proud to be afforded the opportunity to graduate with a degree that would help me get into graduate school or give me a leg up while finding a job. Now when I tell people I go to Brandeis, their only response is, "Oh, the school that wanted to close the Rose Art Museum?"
