King For A Day ’17

Each year, the University of Rochester honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by observing a day of volunteering: King For A Day. Students from all schools of the University go out into various parts of Rochester to connect with the community. After first hearing about this opportunity, I was quite excited by the prospect of[…]

Campus Entertainment: Four Years of Ticket Stubs

Some of the coolest things about being part of a campus community are the frequent events and entertainment sponsored by student groups and the University. During my time at Rochester, I’ve been able to attend all kinds of spectacular shows, riveting talks, and excellent events. Here’s a sampling of my top three concerts, plays, comedians,[…]

Winter Is Coming… To Rochester

5 Reasons To Join an E-board

Having an “e-board” (executive board) position or being on an e-board for something is slang among students here at the University of Rochester for being part of the management of one (or multiple!) of over 200 clubs and organizations on campus. These clubs include everything from arts and crafts to academics, sports, and entertainment. It is generally[…]

Being Musical in Rochester

One of the main reasons why I chose to attend the University of Rochester is because of its many musical opportunities and events. You can take free lessons at Eastman, join orchestra or band, or even form your own musical group with friends. There are many exciting performances to attend, especially towards the end of[…]

Fall Reflections: Things To Do On and Off Campus

On campus, the last of the vibrant leaves meander gradually to the ground from their arboreal abode, bolstered by the cool breeze. Time continues to fly by, encapsulated by the chaotic flurry of a relentless academic to-do list. The brutal deadlines on research papers, perplexing calculations on lab reports, and colossal demands of midterms are punctuated[…]

Career Conferences: The Best Professional Development Opportunity Offered by Rochester

In high school, many seniors have a relatively straightforward post-graduation plan: go to college. Unlike high school seniors, seniors in college face a muddier choice: Should I pursue graduate schools or dive into the job market right away? As a college senior, I have been very curious (and a little stressed) about figuring out my post-graduation[…]

Meliora Weekend: Year 2!

The Pillow Family came back in Rochester for my second Meliora Weekend as a student. (Here’s a recap of my first year.) It was quite the adventure. Highlights from this year’s weekend were the huge white letters spelling “MELIORA” on the quad and all the perfectly circular blue and yellow balloons. Friday Presidential Symposium with Ken[…]

Friday Night Live: Balance Between Work and Play

The University of Rochester is well known for a variety of things, but their Friday nights aren’t typically one of them. Staying true to its stereotype as a bit of a “nerd school,” many students might end up studying well into a weekend night. Some, of course, are actively engaged in the Friday night life,[…]

Meliora Weekend 2016

Just over a year into college, I can say that Meliora Weekend is my favorite Rochester tradition. Once a year, alumni, celebrities, and families visit the University of Rochester for an exciting, eventful weekend. Events range from reunion breakfasts to a keynote address with “Morning Joe.” Past speakers include Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, Steven Colbert,[…]
