There are so many opportunities to embrace the cold and enjoy the snow! Winterfest weekend: One of my favorite campus traditions. This weekend is full of activities both indoors and[…]

Squash Nationals

Last weekend was one of my favorites so far this semester, because I spent three days with my squash team competing in our end-of-season tournament—nationals! Every year, teams come from all over the country (we even played a team from California!) to compete. What’s really cool about it is that even though we’re just a[…]

Interview with Soccer Players Ben Keeton and Andrew Sheridan

I took some time out to interview two sophomore men's soccer players, Ben Keeton and Andrew Sheridan, to get a different perspective on the men's soccer team. Q: How do you manage balancing your mechanical engineering workload with your soccer commitments? Ben: I focus on soccer a little more, to be honest. After that, I[…]

Unwind With Your Favorite College Downtime!

Before I moved to Rochester to attend college, I never realized how much you come to appreciate what is missing from your life during college, its importance, and the subtle role it plays.

Tai Chi Tuesday

T'ai Chi: Explorations in Qi (DAN 211)  Tuesday is my busiest day of the week. On Tuesday mornings, I pretty much stuff all my books into a sports bag and rush out the door with damp hair. My first class starts at 9:40 a.m., and I have class back-to-back until late afternoon. Sometimes when I'm lucky,[…]

Well, our winter off-season consists of a few different aspects: lifting, playing, individual work, and relaxing. Lifting: This consists of lifting weights Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 7:45 a.m. until[…]

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[…]

End of Season Wrap-Up

So, yeah . . . It has taken me a little while to give an end-of-season report due to miscellaneous reasons, mainly sulking over how the season ended. So we made the tournament and won our first game against Misericordia in penalty kicks. We had a great performance, absolutely dominated, but just had a little[…]

UR Track & Field—It’s Back!

  This year, I have proudly joined the UR Men's Track & Field team, Division III, and I am so excited for upcoming competitions. I was a pole vaulter for four years in high school and did pretty well for myself. Unfortunately, my career ended when I shattered my ankle on a high attempt my junior year.[…]
