4 Days, 8 Places to Eat

This month my mom visited me, which was great. One of my favorite parts of her visit was being able to get off campus and explore the food scene in Rochester. Dining hall food is getting pretty old by now. I gathered recommendations for restaurants to go to and narrowed them down based on the kind of[…]

Rochester: A City & Campus for Cinema

What’s the Deal with Wegmans?

My first ever trip to Wegmans, with Sam (a wizened patron) to guide me Coming from the West Coast, I had never heard of Wegmans, which has a bit of a cult following in Rochester. I kept hearing people refer to it, but I didn’t know what it was, much less why it was so[…]

My friends and I used this as a strategy for getting a closer look at London while still studying (coffee shops are great places to study). One of my best friends at the[…]

Rochester Public Market

On Saturdays in the early fall and late spring, students can take a shuttle ride from Rochester’s campus to the Rochester Public Market. Last Saturday I took advantage of this to get some fruit to keep in my residence hall. At 8:30 am, I got on the shuttle with one of my friends and after half an hour I[…]

Make Every Day “Day 1″

Never in my life did I expect to be seated in a coffee shop in downtown Rochester. To be exact, I am doing my MATLAB (matrix laboratory) homework for my audio and music engineering class while waiting to go to my piano class at the Eastman School of Music. Busy busy busy, buzz, buzz, buzz, Meliora,[…]

The festival lasts for a little more than a week, with dozens of performances held on a daily basis. We[…]

Student Spotlight on Summer Internships

I reached out to fellow University of Rochester juniors about their summer internships, jobs, and travels. I am so impressed by the range and depth of the positions they held. Out of the six friends I surveyed, three stayed in Rochester for the summer and three went back home. Two worked in different cities, and two[…]
