Spring Break!!

IT IS FINALLY HERE. And yes, I am talking about nothing other than spring break. At the University of Rochester, this break lasts one week, but I feel like it is placed perfectly in the academic calendar. It is right in the middle of the semester, after two stressful weeks of midterms. Right when I[…]

The Visiting Humanist

It’s been close to two months into the 2012 spring semester, and the University of Rochester, perhaps the City of Rochester, is shying away from the characteristically strong winter. Every now and then, I hear comments about how pleasantly disappointing this year’s winter has been—thus far. I quite remember that I couldn’t see the ground[…]

Remember oUR Name

The latest video created by Rochester's Office of Admissions gives prospective students facts and figures about the University with a hip-hop twist. Released on Wednesday, March 7, the video features popular campus a cappella group the Midnight Ramblers rapping in more than 20 locations, including the iconic Rush Rhees Library, I.M. Pei–designed Wilson Commons, and[…]

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[…]

And We Are Back!

So, winter break has run its course, and now we are back at the University of Rochester for the second semester of the 2011-2012 school year. Personally, I am so happy winter break is over. It was nice to see my friends every once in a while again, but really, being home means working and[…]

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[…]

The Office

It is often said that college is a place where people learn and discover more about themselves. 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[…]
