The Sing-Off Comes to an End for the YJs

The University of Rochester's YellowJackets sadly had to call their time on NBC's The Sing-Off to an end after the top six were picked. It was very sad for everyone watching, even fans from all over the nation. Between Facebook, Twitter, and NBC's own blog, it is clear that the YellowJackets are highly missed. Their[…]

Music in Rochester

I think one of the coolest things about the city of Rochester is how much music is present and goes through here. On top of the Eastman School of Music, which is one of the top music conservatories in the nation, there are many venues and places for artists to perform and make music. One[…]

Last[…]

Trick or Treat!

Halloween isn't just for kids. I think it's the perfect holiday for college students, because it's usually right after midterms when we need a study break. I didn't want to invest in a costume that I'm never going to wear again, so I decided to get a kigurumi.  A kigurumi is a Japanese term for[…]

Courage Bowl!

So it is common knowledge that everyone who comes to the University of Rochester to be a student comes for the academics and is very smart. It’s what gives the school such high credentials. However, although academics are a big deal, our students also take part in tons of activities, including athletics. We are division[…]

ROC to SEA to JFK

A lot has happened in Admissions and on campus since my last post. We’ve enrolled the Class of 2015, we’ve seen the Class of 2011 graduate, and we’ve seen the beginning of construction for the new home of the Warner School of Education and Human Development. Of slightly less importance, I’ve also gotten a lot of[…]
