An Ever Better Weekend

My weekend started out slow; I devoted Thursday night to completing the majority of my homework for the weekend. However, Meliora Weekend quickly blossomed into one of my favorite weekends ever (I know I sound super optimistic here, but I seriously really enjoyed it!). As my mom said multiple times throughout her stay, “Everything is[…]

My Summer as an Urban Fellow

As I set out for a semester abroad, my summer has officially come to an end. But oh, what a wonderful summer it was—full to the brim with engaging learning opportunities, an incredible internship, and countless adventures.

Vocational Bliss: My Summer Internship at Writers & Books

I fell in love with Writers & Books the moment I stepped foot onto 740 University Avenue. Located in the heart of Rochester’s Neighborhood of the Arts, the building is beautifully crafted and exceedingly charming.

Free Lessons at Eastman

One of the many reasons why I was so attracted to the University of Rochester was actually because of one of its schools, the Eastman School of Music. As a music lover, living so close to the best music school in the country provides a world of unbelievable opportunities. Imagine all the concerts, shows, and[…]

5 Reasons to Love Rachacha!

Six or so weeks into the fall semester, we students get to bask in the glory of a four-day weekend known as fall break. 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[…]
