Freedom to Pursue Your Passions!

I’m sure a lot of the people who read this blog would agree that the open curriculum of the University of Rochester was one of the main factors which ultimately led to their decision to attend/want to attend this University. For those of you who are unaware, the University of Rochester does not have any[…]

I Cannot Wait to Go Abroad!

It’s been far too long since I’ve last had the opportunity to blog. Last semester was quite the experience between overloading (taking 21 credits), adjusting to becoming an RA, and continuing to participate in my extracurriculars (brother in Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity and president of the 2016 Class Council). After spending my break relaxing, I[…]

The 2016 Class Council Has Been Crushing It.

As I mentioned in my introduction post, I was re-elected as President of the 2016 Class Council and I’m absolutely loving it. We've had a change in line-up, but our team has been performing excellently and I’m excited to keep our streak up (Shoutouts to: Ulrik Söderström, Douglas Reyes, Kelsey Tuttle, Shakti Rambarran, Zach Jenkins,[…]

3 Differences Between Sophomore and Freshman Year

It has been way too long since I’ve last written a blog post. I am long overdue for some personal reflection. To begin, I cannot believe that it’s already October! I moved into my dorm on August 16th, for RA training, and since then, the days have just been flying by. In the past month[…]

Bonnaroo: My Summer Adventure.

As I’ve mentioned before, I spent the summer before my freshman year on a five-week trip throughout China. This summer, I lacked the funds for such an adventure, but still managed to afford a trip to Bonnaroo music festival. Bonnaroo is located in Manchester, Tennessee. It is a four-day music festival, where music plays from[…]

My Pre-College Experience And Undying Love For Rochester

It has been rumored that if I were to get a cut, I would in fact bleed blue and yellow. People often ask me when my love for University of Rochester started and many are surprised with the answer. It didn’t actually start when I was born, contrary to popular belief, but was actually the[…]

Successes and Failures of my Second Semester

Photo: Me having a blast on Dandelion Day with some of my new friends and brothers! Sorry for the delay with the blogs; it’s been an incredibly hectic second semester. Now that it has finally come to an end, I can conclude that it was indeed better than my first. One of my goals is[…]

SigNu’s Hotdog Eating Contest: 2nd (4th) Place

One aspect of Greek life that is often overlooked is the dedication that many Greek organizations have to philanthropy. Since I started pledging at Sigma Phi Epsilon, I have become active in our philanthropic events as well as those of other groups. Sigma Phi Epsilon will be hosting the 19th Ward Spelling Bee in the 19th[…]

Protips for Choosing the “Perfect” Roommate!

When I was originally posting on the Class of 2016 Facebook group, I wasn’t planning on looking for a roommate. I wanted to let fate decide where and with whom I would live. After having a wonderful year with my great friend, David Stark, as my roommate, I’m glad that I didn’t make that choice.[…]

Spring Break 2013: San Juan, Puerto Rico

As I’ve mentioned in my other posts, I decided to rush this past January and I'm pledging Sigma Phi Epsilon. In my rushing post and now, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you're interested in the Greek system to rush everywhere and find out where is the best fit for you. I definitely found that Sigma Phi[…]
