Student Life: Activities On and Off Campus

Another couple of weeks at the University passed in the blink of an eye, leaving trees mostly leafless and pavements mostly wet. However, the weather was extraordinarily warm and sunny throughout October and I’m really glad about it because I could enjoy probably one of the best-looking autumns in my life here on the River[…]

Fall Fun in Rochester

Most people will tell you that one of the best things about Rochester is that we have four distinct seasons here. I can't completely endorse this because winter is probably my least favorite thing in the world (yet I still love this school–go figure!), but I wholeheartedly agree that fall in upstate New York is[…]

Class Council Held Haunted Hayride Event

I had my first co-sponsored event for Class Council on October 26, and it was an awesome event. The 2014 Class Council planned a haunted hayride event for anyone in the school to attend, and asked the other class councils to co-sponsor the event, and help them financially. Our council helped them set up the[…]

Hurricane Sandy Hasn’t Put a Gloom Over Rochester’s Beautiful Campus

Math at the Movies

It’s no secret that most students love when class is canceled. Usually, it means more free time to do whatever you want (e.g., sleep, study, socialize). However, when my EAS10X Seminar was rescheduled, my friends and I didn’t go hang out in the lounge with the rest of our hallmates — we went to a different lecture.[…]

Take Five, High Five.

What is the TAKE FIVE SCHOLARS PROGRAM? The T5 program complements the University’s vision of a creative and flexible liberal arts education. Students have a tuition-free year to fulfill their intellectual curiosity, often taking courses irrelevant to their major(s). University of Rochester advocates a ‘build your own curriculum’ philosophy which reflects a high level of[…]

Party in the UAA

During the weekend of October 12, I traveled to Pittsburgh and Atlanta with my soccer team to play two conference games. The first was on Friday in Pittsburgh against Carnegie Mellon University. Although the final score was 1-0 in CMU's favor, we turned our focus to our next game in Atlanta against top ranked Emory[…]

Lessons from Meliora Weekend 2012

Meliora Weekend 2010 — my freshman year and my first foray with this crazy campus event — I unknowingly broke my foot. Meliora Weekend 2011 — I nearly died in a head-on collision between midterm hell week and the surrounding festivities. But Meliora Weekend 2012, I am happy to report, went off rather beautifully and painlessly[…]
