Kicking Off a Summer in Rochester

It’s now been over a month since I finished finals and summer 2015 is in full swing. After a couple stressful weeks of studying and paper writing, I headed back home to Oregon for a short visit and some much needed relaxation. But a week and half later, I was back at Rochester, where I’ll[…]

We’ve soldiered through enough papers, exams, and homework assignments to deserve this downtime. In fact, until this weekend, I’ve been so busy I haven’t slowed down, gathered my thoughts, and reflected[…]

2014 Fringe Festival: “Can’t Miss” Comes to Rochester

The 2014 First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival just finished, and I am beyond thrilled, enamored, exhausted, jovial, and pleading for more. I cannot wait until next year. The Fringe Festival is unlike anything I've ever experienced before; thank you, Rochester, for infusing "can't miss" into every moment of your artsy, edgy (and wonderful) madness. If you're[…]

Year Two: Crossing Off the Bucket List

I’ve been back in Rochester just about a month and I couldn’t be more pleased with the current state of affairs—weekend treks off campus, evenings cooking my own food in the dorm kitchen, classes filled with lively discussion with my brilliant professors, a surplus of free time with my friends, and it’s even beginning to[…]

Rochester: The Ideal Home-Base for an Epic Road Trip Summer

Rochester makes a convenient home base for the adventure-ready road-trip warrior. Since I’m from the West Coast originally (never being east of Montana!), this whole side of the country is new to me. My challenge this summer was simple: explore, explore, explore.  Here’s a list (with a few pictures) of all the fun weekend road[…]

Rochester: The Perfect Host for a Great Summer

Last fall, I transferred into the University of Rochester from the West Coast, moving to Rochester at the tail end of summer. Now in the midst of my first full summer season, I've discovered Rochester to be a magical place this time of year. The weather is warm. The festivals are in session, and my[…]
