2014 Fringe Festival: “Can’t Miss” Comes to Rochester

The 2014 First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival just finished, and I am beyond thrilled, enamored, exhausted, jovial, and pleading for more. I cannot wait until next year. The Fringe Festival is unlike anything I've ever experienced before; thank you, Rochester, for infusing "can't miss" into every moment of your artsy, edgy (and wonderful) madness. If you're[…]

Field Work in Ladakh, India

This past summer, I traveled to Ladakh, India, to conduct undergraduate research on tobacco control initiatives taking place there. It was a great opportunity to take what I'd learned in the classroom and apply it to an actual community.

Relaxing the Stress Away

My life as a student gets pretty busy: classes, labs, independent research, jobs, and four or five of our 250+ student organizations. Plus I have friends who occasionally want to hang out with me.

Fall is fast approaching, and along with the calm of the falling leaves comes a certain degree of stress for high school seniors. The Common Application/Universal College App looms ominously in their minds, whether they’ve already sent it to a multitude of schools or have yet to even create an account. Seniors are also routinely[…]

Taking Classes at Eastman!

One of the classes I’m taking this semester is CL-130, a secondary clarinet lesson at Eastman. I’ve been playing the clarinet for many years now, and it’s really nice to be able to work on something outside my majors and to continue to learn more about classical music and clarinet. Practicing/performing on the clarinet is[…]

How To NOT Be a Lazy Senior!

Many of you are seniors in high school, and now I’m a senior in college! I cannot help but think about being lazy. It’s so hard to be motivated because all I want to do is hang out with my friends all the time. But I think the single most effective way to stay productive[…]

Year Two: Crossing Off the Bucket List

I’ve been back in Rochester just about a month and I couldn’t be more pleased with the current state of affairs—weekend treks off campus, evenings cooking my own food in the dorm kitchen, classes filled with lively discussion with my brilliant professors, a surplus of free time with my friends, and it’s even beginning to[…]
