I have worked as an admissions blogger since halfway through my[…]

Reflections of a Summer Research Internship!

Before high school, I was never exposed to the scientific world of research. I’ve been learning the sciences for as long as I remember but there was no research involved. My first introduction to scientific research was when I began college as a freshman. Everyone was telling me how the U of R medical centre[…]

6 Years and 10 New Majors Later

I never thought that I’d still be at Rochester in 2012.  Honestly, I had no idea what I would be doing when I arrived at Rochester in the fall of 2006, let alone what my life would look like in 2012.  I was totally undecided as an incoming student, a fact that led me to[…]

Senior Thesis: Interracial and Interfaith Dating. Thoughts?

By Jeremy Fishman Hey ya’ll. My apologies for not writing last month. I’ve been extremely busy working on my Senior Thesis, a full length play exploring the nature of intermarriage, its effect on individuals, and ultimately how it challenges the nature of identity and cultural “fact.” Any of your thoughts/personal anecdotes on the subject would[…]

Who Said it Was a Bad Idea to Play with Your Food?

An ingenious team of undergraduates didn’t think it was a bad idea.   Chris Babcock ’07, David Borrelli ’09, Dan Fink ’09, and Eric Weissmann ’10 submitted UR Biodiesel as an idea for Rochester’s Charles and Janet Forbes Entrepreneurial Competition back in fall 2006. Their business plan proposed a way to save the University money by[…]
