Academic Interests:

What was your favorite University of Rochester tradition?

Yellowjacket Weekend, hands down. Between the fun day on the rugby field and the tons of events planned for students all weekend, it turned out to be one of the greatest weekends.

What was your favorite U of R memory?

When I lived on my freshman hall, Morgan 6, we had girls’ night every Friday, during which we had time to hang out, eat pizza, and read magazines. It was the best. Anything I did freshman year was my favorite because I had such amazing bonds with my hall and still have them now.

What was your favorite thing about the city of Rochester?

THE FOOD! Rochester was such a cultural city and I absolutely loved its restaurants. My favorite had to be Edibles. Anytime I had a chance to go there I did!

Why did you choose the University of Rochester?

It was the only school that would allow me to pursue all of my varying interests. It was also a beautiful school with amazing people who had a love for knowledge and enriching their lives. The study abroad program in particular showed me this.

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

The study abroad program has to be one of the greatest opportunities I have taken advantage of. I had the opportunity to go to Siena, Italy, in the spring semester of my junior year.
