Heller Diploma Ceremony

Spingold Theater, Brandeis Campus

Sunday, May 18, is commencement day at Brandeis University. The Heller diploma ceremony takes place at 8:00 am in Spingold Theater followed by the University commencement at 10:30 am in Gosman Auditorium.

A reminder to students: go to SPINGOLD THEATER on Sunday morning. Do NOT come to the Heller School. Please be at Spingold at 7:15 am.

As the days warm we eventually need help staying cool in our own homes. Consider good old fashioned fans:  a  floor fan uses about 80 watts of power, compared to an efficient window air conditioner at 400 watts.  Must use AC?  How about buying your electricity from wind power? NSTAR offers 50% or 100% wind options.
