What was your favorite University of Rochester tradition? Why?

My favorite University of Rochester tradition has to be College Convocation. The ceremony itself was hardly the reason why convocation is my favorite tradition. I LOVE food, so for me, the highlight of the event was definitely the “all-you-can-fit-on-your-plate” BUFFET (emphasis mine) that Dinosaur BBQ catered immediately following the tradition.

What was your most meaningful extracurricular activity? Why?

My most meaningful extracurricular activity was football. It was the only one of my extracurriculars that challenged me both physically and mentally. After playing football, I don’t think there is much the world can throw at me that I can’t handle.

Why was University of Rochester a good fit for you?

I’m kind of a weird guy, but Rochester is a very special school. We got along great!
