What is your favorite University of Rochester tradition?

The Boar’s Head Dinner because there was good food, awesome entertainment, a great atmosphere, and it was a good way to get to know some of the faculty.

What was your favorite U of R memory?

Playing Frisbee in two feet of snow and zero-degree weather in the middle of the academic quad.

What was your favorite thing about the city of Rochester?

Garbage plates, because there is nothing like a 4000-calorie meal.

Why did you choose the University of Rochester?

The amount of research opportunities at U of R definitely was the first thing that drew me to the university. However, after visiting the school, the friendliness and openness of the students was what convinced me to come.

What unique opportunities have you taken advantage of at U of R?

With no required subjects, I  had the time to take all different types of classes. Even as a science major, I was taking classes like Storytelling in Indian Religion.
