Some Cultural Surprises

Before coming to study at Rochester, I used to think that I had a pretty accurate idea of what life in the U.S. is like. The vast majority of people living today have some exposure to American culture, mostly via Hollywood and the Internet. I had a lot of it as I grew up on[…]

Getting Involved with Residential Life

The University of Rochester has such a unique way of integrating new students into the Yellowjacket Family. You’d be surprised to know that as a mid-sized university, students know tons of other students all because they build a strong relationship with others from the get go.

It is right in the middle of the semester, after two stressful weeks of midterms. Right when I[…]

Starting the Morning with a Baking Facial

Since I don't have any AM classes this semester, I like to start the morning by practicing my choreography. Sometimes, I just sleep in too. Other days when I feel lazy, I bake! I love it when the warm and delicious heat spreads throughout my face as soon as I open the oven. It's kind[…]
