All Grown Up

By Christopher Bierasinski In May of this year, I graduated from the University of Rochester and landed this excellent position as “Admissions Representative.” I don’t know about you, but when I was in high school, I thought of admissions counselors as traveling gurus and experts on all things “University.”  I assumed it was their lot[…]

How to Make a Shirley Temple

It was my friend’s birthday last week so we decided to go to the Distillery to celebrate.  If it’s your birthday, you get free dessert! Plus, you can use flex there. I’m not a big fan of sugary drinks with my meals, but when I’m at the Distillery, I always order their Shirley Temple. It’s[…]

The “Big” Transition

I meant to write this particular blog entry much earlier in the month, but as all of these feelings still exist in me, I’ll go for it now. I’ve always been a very independent person, and I don’t generally shy away from changes. Regardless, the entire time I was applying to college and all the[…]

Where the bus can take you

I was going to talk about autumn (my favorite season), but then it occurred to me, autumn doesn’t just happen in Rochester, so you probably know what it’s like.  Changing leaves, crisp air, and you ladies pack away the sundresses (Barney Stinson is crying somewhere).  So I decided maybe I should talk about something else,[…]

Um, I don’t drink, no thanks.

It seems as though a lot of prospective students are concerned about the party scene.  I’ve heard questions such as, “Do I have to drink?,” “Are they going to judge me if I don’t?,”  “Maybe I shouldn’t go to parties at all…” Take it from someone who goes partying almost every weekend. I’m allergic to[…]
