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[…]

And the Curtains Close…

So, that is it! Greece Olympia’s Once Upon A Mattress is over. It was a hard three months of rehearsals and work, but it definitely paid off. We were told by teachers, alumni, and the community that this production was the best that Olympia’s stage has ever seen. I personally just can’t believe it is[…]

Time flies

By Stephania Romaniuk February always seems to end with the words “Where did it go?” My fifth year in this city has been no different that way, especially since I added a few more activities to my plate this semester.

Greek Life

When I came to college I had my mind made up – I would NOT be participating in Greek life. I knew the stereotypes and beyond that, I knew what I had been told by many friends at large, public universities – Greek life was for those who had to buy their friends and wanted[…]

The Club Life (How it Got Me Through)

By Brien I don’t know about you guys, but during my freshman orientation the thing I most looked forward to most was the activities fair.  For me, college was going to be my chance to really get out there and try a bunch of things I hadn’t tried before.  Of course, as a typical high[…]

A Weekend to Remember

Just by the simple fact that I attend the U of R tells you that I am not a slacker.  I paid my dues in high school and went way beyond what anyone expected of me. That aside, I also need to add that I’m not a stick in the mud. No sir. I get[…]
