Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!

As a senior, I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been asked what I’m doing next year. Everyone’s curiosity has only increased as we get closer and closer to graduation, but I still have the same answer: I’m spending the summer in Rochester for an internship, but I’m still waiting to hear back[…]

My Latest UR Discovery

Even though it’s my last semester at Rochester, I still feel like I’m discovering new things about the school all the time. For example, I first heard about the Dining Services Dining Committee Meetings about two months ago. My friend invited me to go, and at first I was completely ready to say no—I sit[…]

Squash Nationals

Last weekend was one of my favorites so far this semester, because I spent three days with my squash team competing in our end-of-season tournament—nationals! Every year, teams come from all over the country (we even played a team from California!) to compete. What’s really cool about it is that even though we’re just a[…]

Boar’s Head Dinner

Last Thursday was the annual Boar’s Head Dinner, a Rochester tradition that I never really understood until I went. It’s held in Douglass dining hall and costs $21 in declining (meal plan money) to go, so I basically just assumed it would be like normal dinner but somewhat fancier. I decided to buy a ticket[…]

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[…]

Rochester Through New Eyes

One of the things that I love most about Rochester is that it is its own little community. Of course, students get off campus easily and often but, like most colleges, it is sometimes like living in a happy, self-sufficient bubble. We learn, live, and hang out in the same places and it seems like[…]

Piano at Eastman!

Every semester I tell myself I'm going to have a more chill schedule, take the "normal" amount of credits and not get too over-involved. It literally never works. I started this semester signed up for the standard 16 credits, planning to have a relatively relaxed senior year, but in the past week I have added[…]

5 Things I Learned From Study Abroad

I've been home in the US for just over a week now and it's been strange, to say the least! At first it was pleasantly overwhelming to see my family and friends again after 5 months apart, but now the novelty of being home is wearing off and I'm working my way back into a[…]

Is It Really Over?

It's the end of June, so the good news is I'm officially done with all academic commitments for the semester! I'm a senior! (wait… is this good news?!) The bad news is that my program is ending and I'm saying more goodbyes every day. I've moved around a lot, so saying goodbye is nothing new to[…]

Internships in Argentina

Even though I’m so glad I studied abroad in Argentina, there was one definite downside. As I’ve said in previous posts, my arrival date was February 27, and I won’t get home until July 15—very different from the traditional, mid-January-to-early-May spring semester. This might not sound like a huge deal, but it definitely is when[…]
