Adam Gaffin and Daniel Medeiros were tired of feeling left out, so the Brandeis freshmen founded the Brandeis United Lefthanders Association.
"It all started when we were taking tests. The desks were built for righthanders and our elbows kept bumping," said Medeiros yesterday.
The first organizational meeting of the group, its charter still pending before the Brandeis Student Senate, was attended by "21 people, including three righthanders."
The movement was started primarily to obtain lefthanded desks in Brandeis classrooms, but Gaffin said he could see the Association including "social activities, lectures, or possible affiliation with the League of Lefthanders or Lefthanders International."
