It Is Not Enough To Talk The Talk…

Where the bus can take you

I was going to talk about autumn (my favorite season), but then it occurred to me, autumn doesn’t just happen in Rochester, so you probably know what it’s like.  Changing leaves, crisp air, and you ladies pack away the sundresses (Barney Stinson is crying somewhere).  So I decided maybe I should talk about something else,[…]

Um, I don’t drink, no thanks.

It seems as though a lot of prospective students are concerned about the party scene.  I’ve heard questions such as, “Do I have to drink?,” “Are they going to judge me if I don’t?,”  “Maybe I shouldn’t go to parties at all…” Take it from someone who goes partying almost every weekend. I’m allergic to[…]

The Weary Don’t Want to Rest – That’s Why They’re Weary

So. We’re probably halfway through the semester and my fifth class just started. I’m recommissioning a geartruder extrusion device in senior lab, learning about Noh theatre in my Japanese culture class, and designing process flows — all while trying to convince myself that quantum theory isn’t just some joke that physicists are playing on the[…]

Myth #2: When you walk onto the college campus that is right for you, “You’ll just know, you’ll get that feeling.” Call the Discovery Channel and get me a spot[…]

The Club Life (How it Got Me Through)

By Brien I don’t know about you guys, but during my freshman orientation the thing I most looked forward to most was the activities fair.  For me, college was going to be my chance to really get out there and try a bunch of things I hadn’t tried before.  Of course, as a typical high[…]

Rochester in the Fall

By Stephania Romaniuk Ahhh… Fall in Rochester.  The best season there is. I have always loved the moment I see leaves turning yellow – just a peek here and there at first – because I know that the long, glorious weeks of colorful trees, crisp Fall mornings, and new adventures are about to begin.  Rochester[…]

It Is Not Enough To Talk The Talk…

Every year, admissions professionals and college counselors from all over the country come together at a conference hosted by the National Association of College Admissions Counselors.  Conferences of this type are usually characterized by PowerPoint presentations, contact cards, and ‘I can’t believe I haven’t seen you since last year’s conference’ hugs and handshakes – this[…]
