ROC to SEA to JFK

A lot has happened in Admissions and on campus since my last post. We’ve enrolled the Class of 2015, we’ve seen the Class of 2011 graduate, and we’ve seen the beginning of construction for the new home of the Warner School of Education and Human Development. Of slightly less importance, I’ve also gotten a lot of[…]

UR a Champion!

By Tyler Socash ’09, Admissions Counselor Intramural sports are a quintessential cornerstone at most institutions of higher education. Aside from earning a bachelor’s degree, it is possible that the most significant achievement during your college years is winning an Intramural Championship.
