¿De dónde sos?

Ever since I arrived in Buenos Aires, I have been asked at least a few times each day where I'm from. (For those of you who speak Spanish, in Argentina they use "vos" instead of "tú," meaning that "de dónde eres" becomes "de dónde sos"!) But it wasn't until this past Monday that I truly[…]

Think 1,500 days from now

by Jason Buitrago For the first time ever in American history, the U.S. Census revealed that 30% of adults older than 25 had a college degree. Slightly over a decade ago, that number was less than 25%. This is significant progress in the push for Americans to obtain their college degree. As millions of high[…]

I finally started classes yesterday, and UR goes on spring break. While I've really enjoyed having a ton of free time to relax, soak up some sun, and explore the[…]

Spring Break!!

Every now and then, I hear comments about how pleasantly disappointing this year’s winter has been—thus far. I quite remember that I couldn’t see the ground[…]

Coming Back From NYC!

To tell you the truth, it's still amazing the feeling that one gets inside the UN! But man, I was happy when I took my first breath out of the train in Rochester! I love New York City, I do, but for some reason this time, I felt like a stranger. I felt that I[…]

inspireDANCE

By Allie Levick, inspireDANCE Festival Coordinator   Looking back on the week of the inspireDANCE Festival, it is hard to imagine that my team and I had been planning this event for almost a full year. It is even harder to believe that this was only the second year the festival has taken place—given the[…]

Bienvenidos a Buenos Aires!

Today was my fourth full day in Argentina, but it feels like I've been here so much longer! The city is beautiful, and it's warm enough that I can wear dresses and shorts! So far I've been pretty busy with orientation. We went on a bus tour of the city and attended a lot of[…]
