Clock of the Nations

Dear reader, greetings. I hope your winter break was restful, and that whatever you’ve resumed, be it school, work, or travels, is going well. Perhaps you’d agree with me that if it hasn’t already, the world is increasingly becoming a global village, with the advent of the Internet and all ensuing forms of social media.[…]

League of Librarians

After devouring some turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and topping it all off with fancy desserts, I bet the Thanksgiving break was awesome. I won’t be surprised to see some of us undo our deeds at the gym over the next couple of days. Anyway, as I was cleaning my room over the break, I came[…]

The International Club on Campus

Hello there, Greetings. So, the past weeks have witnessed quite a few activities. The list includes a new set of classes, career fares, a trip to Niagara Falls with the Renaissance and Global Scholars, and a meet with freshmen. However, I’d like to talk about Meliora Weekend, which took place two Saturdays ago on our[…]

A Monumental Campus

Have you ever been to a museum? If you answered yes, and depending on the kind of museum, you may recall the colossal statues, ancient manuscripts, worn out military apparel, century-old guns/rifles that will probably miss a target a few inches away, or even some old equipment which would give you a sense of what[…]

A Day in the Class: What’s Your Name?

The room was unusually quiet given that we had a couple of minutes before the end of class. My blue-black backpack, the one I used on my travels around Europe, was on the chair next to me. It was covered with my to-fit jacket and long dark blue scarf, some of the very few items[…]

Les Jardins d’ Elysée (Gardens of Elysium)

Greetings from Paris, France! In celebrating “Thanksgiving,” the French have put up Christmas lights and decors on most of the streets. Reasonably so, Thanksgiving is not a French tradition, and what a perfect way to celebrate it than by paving the way for Christmas. Of course, the streets of Paris are not short of tourists[…]

Study Abroad: Practically Royal

It's been almost two months into the fall semester and things have gotten quite interesting in France, where I am doing a semester abroad with the IES Business and International Affairs program. Paris is beautiful and majestic, and relatively more multicultural compared to other parts of France – as I have heard and to some[…]

A Nice Summer

Hello there, Welcome to what promises to be an eventful semester. It is great to experience a little bit of a campus whose liveliness stems from the activities of its students, instructors and administrators, not forgetting those of the squirrel and ground hock communities. I hope you had a lovely summer and that the long[…]

The Visiting Humanist

It’s been close to two months into the 2012 spring semester, and the University of Rochester, perhaps the City of Rochester, is shying away from the characteristically strong winter. Every now and then, I hear comments about how pleasantly disappointing this year’s winter has been—thus far. I quite remember that I couldn’t see the ground[…]

Dinner of the Boar’s Head

Hey there, Welcome back! I hope you had a great break and that this year will be full of creativity, good will, and progress, more so than the previous. I, for one, was home in Ghana celebrating Christmas and part of the New Year with friends and family. Quite honestly, it felt great to be[…]
