Reading Season

By Marla Britton New York State sees all four seasons, each with its own unique beauty. Few people realize that the Office of Admissions at the University of Rochester also has four seasons: reading, open campus, visitors, and travel, and just like Mother Nature’s, our seasons each bring a beauty and uniqueness to Rochester. Open[…]

The sun will come out tomorrow…

Just kidding, that already happened this week.  Winter is in full swing in Rochester and that means snow, snow, and more snow.  Yesterday’s weather was particularly interesting.  I woke up to 36 degrees and slightly rainy, so as any typical student at Rochester would think, “Oh hey, it’s warm out,” I donned a sweatshirt and[…]

The weekend of 15th and[…]

Full disclosure: I love mascots. I still remember having my Buffalo Bills plush buffalo and a Baltimore Orioles stuffed animal in my room and prominently displayed when I was growing up. For those who are wondering what a Rochester-born kid would be doing with an Orioles mascot, the Rochester Red Wings were the Orioles farm[…]

Kick-off of another semester

In Rochester, we don’t call it a snowy Wednesday, but just ‘Wednesday.’  Second semester is underway. Everyone came back from winter break and hugged each other, bringing about happy atmosphere around the school. I came back from Korea, spending my winter break working at a factory and seeing family and friends in between. One thing[…]

Entertain me!

By Mike Conklin I have spent the majority of the past four weeks sitting behind a desk, staring at a computer screen, hoping that my eyes survive another season of application review; and I have still reviewed less than half the total number of applications I am expected to review this year.  But, when I[…]
