The Life of Being a “Working Girl” On Campus

When the topic of college life comes up during a conversation, people tend to share memories of the classes they took, the clubs they were in, or the people they met during their college life. The topic of on-campus jobs rarely surfaces during the conversation. However, my working experiences through various campus jobs I’ve taken are[…]

The Anatomy of a Chaotic Semester

It’s here. The end of spring semester is upon us and somehow (likely due to the fact that I stretched myself a bit too thin this term), I’ve gone three months without blogging. To make up for my unfortunate hiatus, I’ve decided to write about the things that have kept me oh-so-busy this semester. While my[…]

A Night at the University of Rochester Starbucks…

I decided to record some of the things people said one night at the Starbucks on campus (i.e., completely inconspicuous eavesdropping) so you could get a feel for what it’s like to relax in a public space on Rochester’s campus. I had a lot of fun with this; please enjoy!   “Wow, this pizza is so[…]

UR Hosts IB World Student Conference This Summer!

The University of Rochester is thrilled to be one of two global hosts for the 2015 International Baccalaureate World Student Conference (IBWSC), held on campus August 2–8. And in a world of confounding complexity, tough-to-swallow headlines, and intractable disputes, we are equally as happy to present the conference theme, “Game Changers: Reaching Solutions Through the Instinct to[…]

School Size Matters

Two years ago (time flies!), when I was making my college decisions, my options boiled down to the final two: University of Rochester and a public research university. One of the major differences between the two schools is their sizes; public schools tend to have a much larger student population, while Rochester prides itself on[…]

The Ins and Outs of Being a Campus Tour Guide

People always ask me if it’s hard to walk backwards. My answer: Yes! But I love it and I love giving campus tours. I’m a campus tour guide, and we call ourselves the Meridians. It is an immense honor, especially after I found out that there are over 100 students applying every cycle, and only[…]

The Perks of Being a D’Lion

  What is a D’Lion? Most people will ask me this question whenever I proudly announce that I am part of the D’Lion Society at Rochester this year. Briefly speaking, the D’Lion Society is a freshman peer advising group on campus. Most D’Lions are sophomores and juniors, but sometimes there are a few seniors as[…]
