Justice is a district without judgment.
A principle guided by the freedom to have your own convictions,
While always pursuing something greater.
In the words of Justice Louis Brandeis,
Most of the things worth doing in the world had been declared impossible…
Before they were done.
Brandeis University encourages its students to
Imagine the Impossible.
To push boundaries towards a common idea of multi-cultural expression.
Because creativity is a global community where everyone has a citizenship card,
But it takes us all to different places.
Ah, the imagination and the intellect is a wonderful union. Worth celebrating in our interdisciplinary studies and art inquisitions where we crack through daily pressures on breakthrough floors such as the Rose Art Museum to become one of the supreme academic institutions of this country. Where both body and mind are awakened for us to dream together.
At Brandeis, the swift gavel of social justice sounds with a truth that rings louder than high brass.
With powerful voices like our B.A.D.A.S.S. debate team, we will argue and then
Defend our stance in guard of this fortress inside of the Castle,
then assemble among Chums to sip the sweet brew of freedom,
Conversing on topics that invite the spirit.
We will then go out as defenders of the free,
Justice saved then protected—now the warding shield. The better we defend, the more we are hit
flush unto its innermost parts.
