What was your favorite University of Rochester tradition?

Every year the hall councils around campus join together and sponsor a ski trip to Bristol Mountain for a day. I went skiing for the first time and LOVED it.

What was your favorite U of R memory?

I have a bunch of memories of just hanging out with my friends and doing anything and everything. For me it was all about who you’re with, and the people I met were awesome.

What was your favorite thing about the city of Rochester?

I loved the different cultural events that were always going on in the city. I went to a bunch of different concerts, musicals, plays, and art shows. There was definitely always something to do, especially when spring rolled around and the festivals started.

Why did you choose the University of Rochester?

For me, it was all about how I felt when I visited the campus. The school was gorgeous, the dorms were nice, the food was good, and most importantly, the people were awesome.

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

I have definitely taken full advantage of the flexible curriculum there. I was able to take classes in anthropology, photography, psychology, AND do my pre-med requirements, AND major in math, AND I had the option to study abroad.
