Memory of Rochester: In my freshman year, I lived in my own dorm in Gilbert for only 3 days, then I never went back to sleep again. Slept in literally everywhere else (friend's place or library): Tiernan, Lovejoy, Hoeing, Sueb, Gleason, Rushrees... But most interesting was that

Message to Family and Friends: thanks all Professors who gave me As,

thanks my dear friends I love you all, we wasted some happy silly 4 years in our life together <3

time flies so fast, might not be able to meet many of the people in Rochester again but I have good memories!
