Learning to Embrace Who You Are

by Sarah Weise, Class of 2020 Despite the voice in my head saying that I shouldn’t memorialize my teenage reputation on the Internet for all eternity, I’m going to do it anyway. You see, I was a nerd in high school. I wasn’t a special variety of nerd, either. I was your typical, marching-band-member-who- sits-in-the-front-row nerd.[…]

Spotlight on Dual Degree in Nursing

The number-one reason I chose the University of Rochester was the Dual Degree in Nursing (DDN) program. In this article, I’ll review the details of the program and explain the aspects of it that I appreciate the most.   I applied for DDN as a high school senior. DDN is virtually early acceptance into the School of[…]

The Dual Degree in Nursing Program

I think it is my duty to write a bit about this awesome program which I am a part of called the Dual Degree in Nursing (DDN) program at the University of Rochester. What is the DDN program? As the title infers, students of the DDN program receive two degrees—one of their choice and a second for[…]

Rochester Admissions Update: Early…Huge…Wow…

We’ve added 21 new degree programs, including two bachelor’s in business, four in public health, and exclusive blends of arts with technology.[…]
