Coming Back From NYC!

To tell you the truth, it's still amazing the feeling that one gets inside the UN! But man, I was happy when I took my first breath out of the train in Rochester! I love New York City, I do, but for some reason this time, I felt like a stranger. I felt that I[…]

inspireDANCE

By Allie Levick, inspireDANCE Festival Coordinator   Looking back on the week of the inspireDANCE Festival, it is hard to imagine that my team and I had been planning this event for almost a full year.

Bienvenidos a Buenos Aires!

Today was my fourth full day in Argentina, but it feels like I've been here so much longer! The city is beautiful, and it's warm enough that I can wear dresses and shorts! So far I've been pretty busy with orientation. We went on a bus tour of the city and attended a lot of[…]

(Still on) Winter Break!

For the first time since I can remember, I have more time than I know what to do with. I'm studying abroad in Buenos Aires next semester, but my program doesn't start until February 26, giving me more than two months of winter break! During the semester, I would give anything to have even an[…]

Everything is Getting Harder. . . .

After fun times and spending time away from school, I thought coming back would be exciting. Not really! It was really good to be in Rochester again and starting the spring semester, but I didn't think that I would be thinking about spring break this fast. I didn't even give myself a month before thinking about[…]

Reflections on Native American Heritage Month: Part One

By Carlie Fishgold, student intern Just a little over six years ago, I made the decision to drop out of high school in order to continue supporting myself as an emancipated minor. To this day, I confidently maintain that I do not regret my decision, especially because the gritty reality of vocational competition in this[…]
