You're probably pretty excited right now.

            You've finished high school, been accepted to college, probably moved to a new city, and are looking at a whole new life. Pretty cool, huh?

            Hell yeah it is. And honestly, Rochester's a pretty cool place to live that life in. We've got countless restaurants, coffee shops, music venues, art galleries, theater companies, and movie theaters to entertain you when you need to step away from your books for a while.

            Figuring out how to navigate it all can be tricky. That's where we come in. In these pages you'll get the scoop on how to stretch those precious few dollars in your bank account by living cheaply during the college years. You'll get a little primer on what kind of clothes you'll need to not only survive, but thrive, through Rochester's rough winters. You'll find maps of the area and, a directory of services that any student might need, and, perhaps best of all, ideas from actual Rochester students about where to eat, where to chill, and more.
