First Week Back, The Summary

Back in Rochester! After enduring one of the hottest summers in Korea, I'm looking forward to the chills in Rochester this semester. I usually come to school a week before classes start in order to help out with Freshmen Orientation. Also, the fall breeze that starts around this time is amazing. It makes me even more[…]
