Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership

Recently I had the opportunity to interact with a youth leadership program at the University of Rochester. The program, Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY), is one of many great examples of early leadership opportunities across the United States. HOBY aims to provide youth with a unique leadership training experience through a combination of group programs[…]

The Best 12 of 2012

I was so busy studying for finals constantly that, until I finished my last one, I hadn't really realized I will no longer be a freshman. It made me reflect back on this year, and it is crazy how fast it went by. So I decided to now make a post about some of my[…]

Fun. Comes to Rochester Once Again!!

Who says there is nothing to do off campus in Rochester? Being a local Rochesterian, I can tell you that there are plenty of activities going on all the time off campus. A lot of really cool things, too.  Water Street Music Hall is pretty famous around here for hosting local bands and performances weekly[…]

Walking Backward in Cardigans

Every Thursday morning from January through March, at the far-too-early-for-many-college-students hour of 7:00 a.m. (a two full hours before the earliest classes even start), a group of UR students can be seen streaming across campus from their various residence halls toward the Interfaith Chapel—where they then begin the long march down several flights of stairs[…]

In the Name of Food and All Who Are Admitted Students

Around campus, there are now unexpected pockets of delicious, free food, and the upperclassmen know what that means—don’t we, guys? The admitted students are arriving one by one to check out Rochester and to see if they should write their deposit check, buy their parents a car decal, and change their Facebook status to “University[…]

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[…]

Coming Back From NYC!

To tell you the truth, it's still amazing the feeling that one gets inside the UN! But man, I was happy when I took my first breath out of the train in Rochester! I love New York City, I do, but for some reason this time, I felt like a stranger. I felt that I[…]

inspireDANCE

By Allie Levick, inspireDANCE Festival Coordinator   Looking back on the week of the inspireDANCE Festival, it is hard to imagine that my team and I had been planning this event for almost a full year. It is even harder to believe that this was only the second year the festival has taken place—given the[…]

Taglit-Birthright: The Experience is Real

As an American Jew, I have grown up with an unavoidably conflicted view of Israel. Distanced from it for my whole life by about 3,500 miles, my knowledge and any subsequent opinions of the Holy Land have primarily relied on two outside sources, neither of which I have ever found to be adequate. The first[…]

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[…]
