Every year the hall councils around campus joined together and sponsor a ski trip to Bristol Mountain for a day. I went skiing for the first time and LOVED it.
I came here because I knew I could pursue my passion for music to the fullest.
The cluster system seemed perfect for me and I loved the idea of not having required core classes. My campus visit and overnight stay then further sealed my decision — I thought the campus was beautiful.
For me, the best Rochester experience was a program in which I went to an elementary after school program in the city and helped the children with their homework and provided a friendly face for them to talk to.
