            1994-1997, Master's Degree

            A great school for high energy particle physics, astronomy, quantum optics, and theoretical physics. I was sent as a graduate student to the CERN Large Hadron Collider as well as the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Graduate level courses with small class sizes give you great access to all of the professors

            What I loved most about UR was how flexible its requirements were: only one single mandatory writing course (which can easily be fulfilled your first semester of college if you get through the lottery the first time), choosing at least one major and completing 'clusters' in the other genres that you don't major or minor in, and then you have all the freedom and choice to study whatever else you want. I was able to study subjects that I never thought I would, including American Sign Language and Anthropology, which I ended up minoring and majoring in respectively (including my second major, French). The city of Rochester itself is so rich in culture that I was never bored with whatever was happening, whether it was catching a free concert at Eastman, grabbing a cuppa at The Spot Cafe, or attending one of its many annual art festivals. Most of all, it was the people that I met through classes and extracurricular activities (shout-out to OBOC!) who today, even five years after we graduated, are still my closest and most cherished friends whom I hope will continue to be a part of my life forever. Rochester was the best thing that ever happened to me.

            The University of Rochester is unique in the way it balances tremendous academic freedom (few required classes, loosened distribution requirements within each major, and a wide variety of programs, including the option to build your own major) with a structured system of learning (capstone seminars, essential courses for scientists and engineers, and the requirement that everyone do at least a cluster in each division of the college). The excellent teacher:student ratio enables close collaboration, with office hour visits commonplace and students often working on professors' research projects. Rochester is distinctive in that a very large percentage of the student body conducts original academic research of a distinguished caliber, and that a large plurality of the student body is proficient in one or more musical instruments. There are options for cross-study between the College of Arts & Sciences, the Hajim School of Engineering & Applied Science.
