Happy Year of the Horse!

It was the Chinese New Year a few weeks ago, and it was my first time not spending this important and joyous occasion with my family. Chinese New Year, very much self-explanatory, celebrates the arrival of a new year on the Chinese calendar. Before Chinese New Year, it is a traditional practice to clean and[…]

The $5K Challenge!

“What would you do with $5000 to improve the lives of Rochester students?” Something new in the fall of 2013 was the 5K Challenge that the University of Rochester Students’ Association organized. Basically, the student government, which we refer to as the Students’ Association or SA, fronted $5,000 and asked students, “What would you do[…]

My Typical Weekend: A Student Play-By-Play

Every summer before school starts, I always see the incoming freshmen on their respective Facebook group asking what a typical weekend might be like at the University of Rochester. I thought what better way to share this than to just give a detailed weekend play-by-play. By that I mean that I simply recorded what I[…]
