Chinese Language Program at UR

I come from loving parents. Especially when it comes to learning, my parents have always prioritized and supported what I have been interested in and let me learn whatever I enjoyed doing, from learning piano to coming to America to pursue a critical learning experience. However, there is one thing that they expected: Chinese language.[…]

Midterms, Midterms, and Midterms

In my high school, there was only one midterm period for most of my classes. Some classes didn’t even have midterms and went straight to finals. I am bringing up my good old days because I hope to explain the difference of “midterms” in college. As much as it is important to enjoy the entire[…]

Shines of Fall Season

At the University of Rochester, my favorite periods of time are fall (move-in through October) and spring (March to May). Especially during the fall season when the leaves turn red and yellow, the entire campus looks gorgeous. I advise high school students and parents to visit our campus during these times more than in November[…]

The weekend of 15th and[…]

Kick-off of another semester

In Rochester, we don’t call it a snowy Wednesday, but just ‘Wednesday.’  Second semester is underway. Everyone came back from winter break and hugged each other, bringing about happy atmosphere around the school. I came back from Korea, spending my winter break working at a factory and seeing family and friends in between. One thing[…]

Thanksgiving Break from an international glance

By Tuesday evening, the school was emptied out, indicating Thanksgiving Day break but I could not feel anything because the emptying process happened when I was using my last bit of energy before break to finish assignments. On Wednesday morning I could count on one finger how many people I saw on my way to[…]

Midterms and papers . . . and papers . . .

It has been two weeks since Halloween.  I wished I could have wrote right after Halloween night, but it has been really hectic over the past fourteen days.  Soon after my fun filled Halloween weekend, midterms and papers…and more papers were due in class.  It was like a tsunami to my brain. I just finished[…]

Why I Came to University of Rochester

For anyone who has not read my bio, I am an international student from South Korea. I was born and raised there most of my life. In June, 2007,  I came to America (specifically Orange County, California) for education and started high school in my sophomore year. Just as most Californian high school students end[…]
