Summer in Rochester

(June 10 2010) Written by: Emily Okey in Student Life

I woke up this morning and realized that it's my second to last day waking up in my apartment because I'm headed home soon!! After a full quarter of classes, a week of finals, a week on a retreat in upstate NY and then 2 weeks of working in the admissions office, I'm ready for a little break.

People might complain about weather in Rochester for the winter but you certainly can't complain about days like these...

The sky looks unreal in that picture and I promise that no part of it was photoshopped. It's the view from the top of the stairs outside of the Gordon Field house looking out on the soccer/lacrosse/track field with the NTID building in the distance.

View from the campus center looking down the quarter mile to the residential side.

And one of the other ambassadors taking a break outside of the office =)

Summers in Rochester are definitely worth sticking around for. I do like the other seasons too, but there is something to be saidThere are so many concerts, outdoor festivals, beach (ontario lake) going opportunities and lots of other thing to do outside! I've already started making plans for what I'm going to do when I come back up here in July. 

If you haven't signed up yet, consider registering for College and Careers in July or August! A lot of the admissions ambassadors come back to work that and it's a lot of fun! I'll post a little more about it as the deadline for registration gets closer.

    Hi Emily! My daughter had a fantastic first year at RIT and she's looking forward to her return this Fall. I must agree whole-heartedly with you about College and Careers. My daughter and I attended the summer before her senior year. It was a fantastic experience that basically helped her select RIT. Any parents who have students even remotely interested in RIT should encourage them to go.

    BTW, Emily, you're not missing much in Maryland. It's already very hot and very muggy. Good luck!!
