As the semester ends, I look back to all the wonderful times and memories I have experienced as a first semester freshman at Rochester. Starting from the very beginning—coming to Rochester, meeting my roommate and all our friends, getting to know my way around classes and college life, in general—it has been an amazing ride![…]

Studying Abroad Part 1 of 3: Everyone Can Do It

Studying abroad in college was something I’ve always wanted to do since high school, but it was only a general idea in my head. I didn’t know where I wanted to go, how long I wanted to stay, or what the application process was even like. So when I got to the University of Rochester, I[…]

Becoming a Rochester student also comes with the perk of living in a place within easy driving distance of some of the most exciting cities in the country that can provide easy entertainment and stress relief for antsy college[…]

What is Public Health?

Are you interested in the medical profession? In policy making? In current events related to global and national health? In helping others? Yes? Then, have you looked into a public health degree? I am a health, behavior, and society major, which is one of the five specializations within the public health major. There is a public[…]

“But I am not from Eastman”: Music Projects for Everyone

“But I am not from Eastman!” “I am not as good as others.” I’ve come across these sentiments several times when the topic of music and the opportunity to be involved comes up. A lot of college and future college students are musically talented and wish to continue pursuing their talent once they arrive on campus.[…]
