Weekend Getaways

Pittsford Plaza is just like any other ordinary shopping complex for people from the local Rochester area. And a really nice one too, that is. P.S. I heard Trader Joe's is opening up here; so excited!!!!!! But wait, that's not it. Why would I randomly mention Pittsford Plaza in my blog post if it didn't[…]

Dinner of the Boar’s Head

Hey there, Welcome back! I hope you had a great break and that this year will be full of creativity, good will, and progress, more so than the previous. I, for one, was home in Ghana celebrating Christmas and part of the New Year with friends and family. Quite honestly, it felt great to be[…]

FINALS

Finals week: The time of over-packed libraries, endless trips to Starbucks, and countless Facebook statuses about tests and studying. This is what I have discovered finals are like here at the University of Rochester. I myself had three finals, but one was during classes. Thankfully, the University provides us with a "reading period," which is[…]

Reasonably so, it is not strange to hear people make remarks like: “It was in college that I discovered my passion for antiques, hence my interest in anthropology courses." Or: “While in college, I realized I had to[…]

Shines of Fall Season

At the University of Rochester, my favorite periods of time are fall (move-in through October) and spring (March to May). Especially during the fall season when the leaves turn red and yellow, the entire campus looks gorgeous. I advise high school students and parents to visit our campus during these times more than in November[…]

Music in Rochester

I think one of the coolest things about the city of Rochester is how much music is present and goes through here. On top of the Eastman School of Music, which is one of the top music conservatories in the nation, there are many venues and places for artists to perform and make music. One[…]

Beware! The trees are getting undressed in public!

Winter is on the horizon, and the weather of autumn is working its magic and washing the chlorophyll that masked the beauty of the trees for a long time, revealing the splendid true colors of my surroundings. So, the summer is taking its mask down revealing what was hidden, leaving all of us standing in[…]
