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[…]

Reflections on Native American Heritage Month: Part One

By Carlie Fishgold, student intern Just a little over six years ago, I made the decision to drop out of high school in order to continue supporting myself as an emancipated minor. To this day, I confidently maintain that I do not regret my decision, especially because the gritty reality of vocational competition in this[…]

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[…]

I do some pretty random things, but recently I did something I could have never predicted a few months ago: I put on a jingly hip-scarf and all the glittery things I owned and danced in front of a crowded room of people. This semester I took a Middle Eastern dance class, and as part[…]

The YellowJackets Concert, December 2011

On December 11, the University of Rochester YellowJackets had their fall semester concert in Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theatre. I was so lucky to be able to attend the second show of the day at 7 pm, considering the first show at 3 pm sold out in three days and the second show sold[…]

Winter Fun in Rochester!

I’m moving in to the George Eastman House. Never mind the fact that it’s a museum now; it’s happening. I went for the first time with some friends on Saturday afternoon, and it was all decorated for Christmas and really pretty. The selling point for me, however, was the beautiful gardens outside. I’m in love.[…]
