Using the Rochester Buses!

One of my favorite things about being a student at the University of Rochester is that you really do not need to have a car on campus at all during your four years of undergraduate studies. Rochester allows students to use the Shuttle Service. The University has a variety of bus lines that take students[…]

Navigating the Tunnels

Being from the west coast, I was never really around snow. I had been skiing once, but that was pretty much it. I went sledding, made a snowman, and had a snowball fight all for the first time at the University of Rochester, all on our beautiful campus. Before starting college, 70 degrees Fahrenheit was[…]

Meliora Weekend 2013!

One of my favorite activities at the University of Rochester is being a member of the Student Alumni Ambassadors (SAAs). SAAs represent a very select group of students chosen to represent the current student perspective and outlook to thousands of U of R alumni. Alumni continue to rave about Rochester's academic opportunities, open curriculum, and[…]

Housing is incredible at the University of Rochester, with great campus diversity. When you are a freshman, you get a double (two beds) or triple (three beds) typically, referring to the number of roommates you have. You share the bathroom with the rest of the individuals on your hall, and you also all share a[…]

I have never been a student at a state school, but I have heard time and time again that getting involved at a state school is extremely difficult; although there are many organizations, each one[…]

I thought I would write about how my summer internship relates to my school studies, highlighting Rochester’s academic opportunities and flexible curriculum. Basic public health does not explicitly concern itself with the medical device industry because of the industry’s[…]

Summertime Networking

Although summer is a great time to rest and relax, it’s also a chance to network with professionals in fields you’re interested in going into. I love meeting new people and getting to learn about their backgrounds and experiences. I am still on schedule to intern this summer at a biomedical engineering company, but budget[…]

Campus Play: “Bang Bang You’re Dead”

Recently at the University of Rochester, a group of students (including some of my close friends) got together and organized the production of "Bang Bang You're Dead," a one-act play centering around gun violence on school campuses. It was an amazing opportunity to see my peers act on an issue so important in today's society.[…]

Homeless 4 Homeless

Every spring semester, my fraternity puts on an event called Homeless 4 Homeless. For 48 hours, brothers of my organization will emulate the homeless outside Wilson Commons, our Student Union building, as a way to raise awareness about the issues of homelessness right here in our own country. We also hope to collect donations from[…]
