Making High School Meaningful: Part Five

Year 2

By Christopher Bierasinski, Admissions Counselor I’ve been at Rochester now for over five years. Five full years have gone by. 1,826 days. It seems crazy to me to think about that, considering I still remember sitting around in AP Calculus back in high school and excitedly activating my Rochester email address because it was required[…]

Saying Goodbye…

Goodbye. One of the hardest things to do in any situation. It is a moment of mixed emotions. MANY mixed emotions. Sadness, anxiousness, happiness, nervousness… The list goes on, and is different for everyone. Move-in day is Wednesday, August 24, for the University of Rochester Class of 2015.

So, summer is already more than half over, but there is still so much going on until we leave for college! One of the biggest things is none other than graduation parties. We have all gone to them since freshman year, maybe earlier for some, but now, it is our best friends and ourselves having[…]

Making High School Meaningful: Part Five

It’s okay to enter college undecided. Some of you know what you’re going to be when you grow up, and some of you have no idea. Some of you who think you know will change your mind. Most of my friends in college changed their minds, as have many current college students I know. College[…]
