Why the University of Rochester Loves IB

More About My Summer Internship!

The Brain Game

Have you ever wondered what your brain looks like? I mean, what really is that mush between your ears anyways?

Students have a tuition-free year to fulfill their intellectual curiosity, often taking courses irrelevant to their major(s). University of Rochester advocates a ‘build your own curriculum’ philosophy which reflects a high level of[…]
