Theater PR Internship [Sep. 10th, 2009|11:32 am]
University of Rochester


If anyone here is interested in PR or Marketing or Advertising, the UR's International Theater Program offers a PR & Marketing internship, and there's still a couple of spots open. You sign up for it just like a course: it's ENG 398 and is worth four credits. I'm one of the interns this semester, and I'm terribly excited about it; I come out of every session charged up. We're learning about the fundamentals of marketing and advertising, writing press releases, and the like. The play we're currently trying to promote is The Illusion, an adaptation by Tony Kushner (of Angels in America fame) of a play by French playwright Pierre Corneille, which is a substantially awesome piece of work.

So: The interns meet every Wednesday from 5 to 6:30. If you're available at that time, and sufficiently intrigued, e-mail Nigel Maister, the director of the Theater Program:


I hope to see you there!

Apartment for Sublet [May. 26th, 2009|11:39 am]
University of Rochester


We just bought a house and need to sublet our apartment for July or August until November. 

We live in a 900 sq. foot 1 bedroom apartment.  It has it's own washer and dryer in the unit.  It also has a balcony AND a gas fireplace.  We are on the second floor so very private.  Corner unit so LOTS of windows and natural light.  It's only about 15 minutes by car to U of R and great for a grad student living off campus.  I went to U of R (and now work there) and commute without a problem.

We are also really close to Black Creek Park, and the Genesee River if you like our door stuff.  And are walking distance to many amenities on Chili Ave including Wegmans, KMART, Target, Blockbuster, a bar, several pizza places, a gym, and many more.

Rent is $790/mo and includes hot water, basic cable, and high speed internet.

Email me at lrichar3@gmail.com if you are interested in finding out more.  I have photos I can sent and am willing to show interested parties a tour.

University of Rochester


Local indie/punk band with piano-laden songs about everything from particle physics to drunken phone calls to your ex. We released our first self-titled EP last year and on July 2nd, we'll have a batch of new songs, entitled "Celebrity Crush." This fall, we're releasing our first full-length, "Signals." We have a bunch of local summer shows coming up, so check out our stuff and maybe we'll see you at one.

Graduate housing [Feb. 24th, 2009|09:11 am]
University of Rochester

My husband was accepted into UR's graduate program and we are planning our visit for the orientation this upcoming weekend. I am especially interested in gaining information about housing. We currently live in Portland, Oregon, so it will be a big geographical move for us this summer.

My husband's goal is to find somewhere within walking distance for 4-6 months while we search for a house to purchase in the area.

I've been looking at the university website about graduate housing, but for all the words, it seems to not give very much information. I see lots of roomate ads in their off campus housing database, but we are a married couple and are not interested in living with roomates. Does anyone here know how much does university graduate housing cost? Their literature doesn't say at all. Is it a better deal than finding an apartment one's self?

I also perused the D & C apartment ads online, but it just links to apartments.com, which doesn't have very good searchability. Looking at Rentrochester.com and restricting by the Strong neighborhood (which is within walking distance) I see that a 1 bedroom is $720. Is that right? That's almost as much as we pay in Portland and our houses are far more expensive, so I'm not sure I understand this phenomenon. If that's really true, then perhaps we need to consider buying a house before moving out?

International Prospective Student [Oct. 22nd, 2008|04:02 pm]
University of Rochester

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]



I’m a prospective student from South Africa. I graduated from high school last year and then took a gap year. My family is planning to move to America and we’re considering Rochester.


I’ve been researching Universities in Northern America and my favorite so far is the University of Toronto, Canada. I want to study Anthropology and I really like what I’ve heard so far about the cultural diversity at Toronto, but I’m taking Rochester into consideration as well.


I have a few questions and would greatly appreciate it if someone could take the time to answer them.


1.)    A few people have posted comments that give me the idea that Rochester is rather conservative, is this true?

2.)    How is Rochester towards international students? And gay students?

3.)    Are there any South African students at Rochester?

4.)    What’s the Anthropology program like?

5.)    What’s the deal with the no cars rule for 1st years? Are they actually allowed to do that?

6.)    What’s the crime rate like?

7.)    Are the libraries any good? Are there at least a few great bookstores?


Thanks in advance.
