Academic Interests:

Why did you choose the University of Rochester?

I choose Rochester because of the academic curriculum. I love the idea and philosophy that I could take any classes that I wanted to. I have come to enjoy the freedoms of choosing my own path knowing that I perform better because I am actively engaged in a topic of my interest.

What unique opportunities have you taken advantage of at Rochester?

I am currently taking clarinet lessons at the Eastman School of Music. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to take courses at Eastman and gaining access to the Sibley Library, one of the world’s largest music libraries.

How would you describe the “typical Rochester student?”

A student who is motivated and passionate about what they do and understand the opportunities given to them by an institution such as Rochester. They are proud of what they and their fellow classmates have accomplished and are always working to improve themselves and their community.
