Anyone living in there? I'm due to start my freshman year at University of Rochester as an international student and would like to know how it's like up there; weather, entertainment, convenience etc.
UofR is like 20 minutes away from me outside of Rochester and Henrietta. I'm guessing since you're an international student you won't have your own car...but since you're going to a big college I'm sure you'll make friends with people that have them.
There's a lot to do in the city, tons of restuarants, lots of shopping not too far from you in Henrietta, Greece, even Pitsford. If you want to travel a bit it's about an hour to Buffalo and they have a big mall there and more restuarants.
Will you be living on campus? Weather shouldn't be too bad...Rochester is known for their bitter winters...but the past 2 we've had haven't been bad at all. Cold to say the least, but snow wise you're not going to be buried. Convenience wise you should have everything you need right on campus for you, if not you can go down the road in Henrietta, there is a Wegmans (food store), malls and other department stores, movie theatres, restuarants...if you have any questions though feel free to ask me.
