“Being an Artist”

By Stephania Romaniuk At the moment I’m taking in Adele’s new single “Someone Like You,” which for me comes after a few months of delving into different types of pop songs and learning from the artists who perform them.  Not that I’ve had heart-to-hearts with these artists, but the beauty of the Internet and the[…]

The Best Food You Will Have Ever Tasted In Your Life

I’m talking about the food on campus. I know it’s not your mom’s stews, your dad’s stir-frys, or your grandma’s pastries. Compared to those, campus food is like eating a piece of cardboard, or dirt.

Study, Study, Study

I just finished[…]

All Grown Up

By Christopher Bierasinski In May of this year, I graduated from the University of Rochester and landed this excellent position as “Admissions Representative.” I don’t know about you, but when I was in high school, I thought of admissions counselors as traveling gurus and experts on all things “University.”  I assumed it was their lot[…]

How to Make a Shirley Temple

It was my friend’s birthday last week so we decided to go to the Distillery to celebrate.  If it’s your birthday, you get free dessert! Plus, you can use flex there. I’m not a big fan of sugary drinks with my meals, but when I’m at the Distillery, I always order their Shirley Temple. It’s[…]
