Clock of the Nations

Dear reader, greetings. I hope your winter break was restful, and that whatever you’ve resumed, be it school, work, or travels, is going well. Perhaps you’d agree with me that if it hasn’t already, the world is increasingly becoming a global village, with the advent of the Internet and all ensuing forms of social media.[…]

League of Librarians

After devouring some turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and topping it all off with fancy desserts, I bet the Thanksgiving break was awesome. I won’t be surprised to see some of us undo our deeds at the gym over the next couple of days. Anyway, as I was cleaning my room over the break, I came[…]

The International Club on Campus

Hello there, Greetings. So, the past weeks have witnessed quite a few activities. The list includes a new set of classes, career fares, a trip to Niagara Falls with the Renaissance and Global Scholars, and a meet with freshmen.

SAAs represent a very select group of students chosen to represent the current student perspective and outlook to thousands of U of R alumni. Alumni continue to rave about Rochester's academic opportunities, open curriculum, and[…]

I love meeting new people and getting to learn about their backgrounds and experiences. I am still on schedule to intern this summer at a biomedical engineering company, but budget[…]

School Spirit, Redefined

Campus life has been a little crazy the past few weeks with my college soccer career coming to an end and coursework picking up toward the end of the semester. Despite my busy schedule, I have really been enjoying the excitement! We had a wonderful night with our teammates, coaches, friends, and family at our[…]

Shave to Save 2012

As an alumnus and an admissions counselor, I like to stay connected with student life. It makes my job much easier to be able to tell students about the day-to-day life of your typical UR student. I can learn a lot from our tour guides, who tell me about their other involvements on campus and[…]

Math at the Movies

It’s no secret that most students love when class is canceled. Usually, it means more free time to do whatever you want (e.g., sleep, study, socialize). However, when my EAS10X Seminar was rescheduled, my friends and I didn’t go hang out in the lounge with the rest of our hallmates — we went to a different lecture.[…]
