Alin Kenworthy '18

“There’s a concept that there’s no such thing as the perfect recording of a live sound. I’m interested in trying to get as close to that as possible,” Alin says. He’s found a great way to pursue that quest: The Hajim School’s new audio and music engineering degree program, which prepares students to produce and distribute online and live music, do sound design for video games, design musical and audio equipment, and develop core audio technologies and electronics.  Read more . . .

Demeara Torres ’18

Demeara is pursuing a degree in computer science at the University of Rochester, hoping to one day teach high school students a solid foundation of skills so they can pursue their own careers in computing. In the meantime, she’s enjoying the opportunities the University offers its students to pursue the interests they arrived with – and to discover new ones. In Demeara's case, those interests are as diverse as digitizing letters from the past -- and trying her hand at comedy improv. Read more . . .

Jacob Niebloom '18

Jacob exemplifies the take-charge, entrepreneurial spirit that the Hajim School seeks to encourage in its students.  The computer science major manages to run two online companies in addition to taking classes and being a workshop leader for another. Read more . . .

Haberly Kahn '18

“I don’t think I could have chosen a better place,” says Haberly, who is proving it really is possible to major in chemical engineering and play varsity softball at the same time. Read more . . .

Kameron Tinkham '18

Kameron is pursuing her passion for math and physics as an optical engineering student through the University’s five-year GEAR master’s program. She’s conducting research at two nationally recognized facilities: The Institute of Optics and the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. She's active in the Off Broadway On Campus theatre group and the Juggling Club. Above all, she’s found a sense of community with like-minded students. Read more . . .

Janson Ho ’18

If you want to do research as an undergraduate, the University of Rochester is good place to be. Just ask Janson, a chemical engineering major who studied peptide assembly and protein folding in a University lab the summer before his sophomore year. Read more . . .

Meghan Patrick ’18

Meghan, at right in the photo above, is strongly motivated to serve others.  No wonder she fits right in at the University of Rochester where the motto, Meliora, is a reminder to “make the world ever better.” The mechanical engineering major is making a difference by tutoring Rochester inner city school students each Saturday afternoon.

Akihiro Minami ’18

Akihiro says he learns best in small to medium class settings. He’s found that at the University of Rochester.  “The campus is small enough that you will always run into someone you know, but big enough you always get to meet new people.” Read more . . .

Unni Kurumbail ’18

Unni, who is majoring in chemical engineering, was originally “not that interested” in attending the University of Rochester. But he's glad he did, in part because the open curriculum allows him to choose a cluster of related courses in an area of the humanities or social sciences that actually interests him, rather than having  to take what would be called “general education requirements” at other colleges.
