Rochester in the Fall

All Grown Up

By Christopher Bierasinski In May of this year, I graduated from the University of Rochester and landed this excellent position as “Admissions Representative.” I don’t know about you, but when I was in high school, I thought of admissions counselors as traveling gurus and experts on all things “University.”  I assumed it was their lot[…]

Stories from the Road: “The Journey”

By Satyajit Dattagupta Going back home and recruiting for the University of Rochester has been a great learning experience for me. I was in India and Nepal on the “CIS India Tour” during the month of October and met some outstanding students.

Where the bus can take you

I was going to talk about autumn (my favorite season), but then it occurred to me, autumn doesn’t just happen in Rochester, so you probably know what it’s like.  Changing leaves, crisp air, and you ladies pack away the sundresses (Barney Stinson is crying somewhere).  So I decided maybe I should talk about something else,[…]

Inspired by a Fortune

“This is crap,” says a friend sitting next to me at The Commons (formally known and preferred as the “The Pit”), as he reads his fortune from the Panda Express.  I began to reminisce about a fortune cookie from the past… Two years ago, during a time when I was stressing over college applications, I[…]

The Club Life (How it Got Me Through)

By Brien I don’t know about you guys, but during my freshman orientation the thing I most looked forward to most was the activities fair.  For me, college was going to be my chance to really get out there and try a bunch of things I hadn’t tried before.  Of course, as a typical high[…]

Rochester in the Fall

By Stephania Romaniuk Ahhh… Fall in Rochester.  The best season there is. I have always loved the moment I see leaves turning yellow – just a peek here and there at first – because I know that the long, glorious weeks of colorful trees, crisp Fall mornings, and new adventures are about to begin.  Rochester[…]
