Rochester in the Fall

By Stephania Romaniuk Ahhh… Fall in Rochester.  The best season there is.

Stories from the Road: “Bonding Over BBQ”

By Bradley Booke This past week, during a high school visit, I had the opportunity to talk about one of my favorite places in Rochester… Dinosaur BBQ. The student I was talking with had recently visited Rochester and had been impressed with what he found.  Nothing impressed him more, though, than the culinary delight that[…]

The Tears and Joys of Filmmaking

Senior Thesis: Interracial and Interfaith Dating. Thoughts?

By Jeremy Fishman Hey ya’ll. My apologies for not writing last month. I’ve been extremely busy working on my Senior Thesis, a full length play exploring the nature of intermarriage, its effect on individuals, and ultimately how it challenges the nature of identity and cultural “fact.” Any of your thoughts/personal anecdotes on the subject would[…]

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[…]

Who Said it Was a Bad Idea to Play with Your Food?

An ingenious team of undergraduates didn’t think it was a bad idea.   Chris Babcock ’07, David Borrelli ’09, Dan Fink ’09, and Eric Weissmann ’10 submitted UR Biodiesel as an idea for Rochester’s Charles and Janet Forbes Entrepreneurial Competition back in fall 2006. Their business plan proposed a way to save the University money by[…]
