Thanksgiving Break from an international glance

By Tuesday evening, the school was emptied out, indicating Thanksgiving Day break but I could not feel anything because the emptying process happened when I was using my last bit of energy before break to finish assignments. On Wednesday morning I could count on one finger how many people I saw on my way to[…]

Lucky Penny

On those rare occasions when I find an old penny, one that’s a little tarnished and worn away on its surface, I often stop to wonder where that penny has been or whose hands have held it previously. The other day I was walking across the academic quad (technically called Eastman Quadrangle) and I found[…]

“In the Eye of All Trade” by Professor Jarvis

By Tyler Socash It’s always exciting when one of your favorite faculty members gets recognized!  I was thrilled to learn that Associate Professor Michael Jarvis has won the 2010 James A.

“Being an Artist”

By Stephania Romaniuk At the moment I’m taking in Adele’s new single “Someone Like You,” which for me comes after a few months of delving into different types of pop songs and learning from the artists who perform them.  Not that I’ve had heart-to-hearts with these artists, but the beauty of the Internet and the[…]

There are certain foods that my friends will eat with hesitation throughout the whole meal.  I still don’t know why[…]

Study, Study, Study

I’m not talking about studying for class (even though I guess that’s important), I’m talking about scientific studies.  We’ve all heard about people selling their bodies to science, or subjecting themselves to obscene amounts of radiation with hopes of becoming a super hero and earning a couple hundred bucks.  Well the ones I’m talking about[…]

My First S’more

When I was preparing to embark on my trip to the United States – specifically Rochester – it was clear I was on the pathway to discovery.  Yes, discovery of: knowledge, myself and people in general. Little did I know that the discovery package includes the seemingly trivial aspects of the life of the average[…]

Rochester Students Are Smarter Than I Am…

By Mike Conklin The trials and tribulations of travel season are inevitable – delayed flights, missed meals, and wrong turns abound.  Save for Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Sports Talk Radio, life on the road can be tough.  But amidst the high school visits, college fairs, and prospective student interviews there are those brief moments that[…]

Midterms and papers . . . and papers . . .

It has been two weeks since Halloween.  I wished I could have wrote right after Halloween night, but it has been really hectic over the past fourteen days.  Soon after my fun filled Halloween weekend, midterms and papers…and more papers were due in class.  It was like a tsunami to my brain. I just finished[…]
