Why the University of Rochester Loves IB

While there are many elements of the International Baccalaureate program that we appreciate, we feel that there are three reasons UR and IB are a great fit for each other:   1) IB features a broad and deep curricular exploration of the intersections between disciplines. We place a great deal of faith in the reasoning[…]

More About My Summer Internship!

I love what I study at the University of Rochester (which is public health by the way). I thought I would write about how my summer internship relates to my school studies, highlighting Rochester’s academic opportunities and flexible curriculum. Basic public health does not explicitly concern itself with the medical device industry because of the industry’s[…]
