Join a Multicultural Club!

One of my favorite things about being a student at the University of Rochester is that everyone is so passionate about things they love to do and believe in.

Freshman Housing Looks Hard, But It Isn’t

As an incoming freshman, one of my biggest worries about college was having to share a room with a complete stranger. I was accustomed to having a space of my own, a safe haven to retreat to at the end of the day. However, in college, I realized that I will no longer have complete[…]

New Year’s Resolutions For a Successful Academic Year

2015 is here and I can say with confidence that I have experienced more changes in the last four months than in the past eighteen years of my life. I never thought that I would attend a school in New York and live by myself in a place so far away from home. The first[…]
