Residency / University of Rochester
Hometown / Rochester, NY
Rochester boasts the many amenities of a medium-sized city, including numerous restaurants, breweries, music halls, museums, theatres, etc, but also allows for easy access to the beautiful outdoors, including Lake Ontario, the Finger Lakes (vineyards!), hiking and biking trails, parks, and two ski resorts within an hour of the city.
Rochester is also incredibly affordable (even on a fellow's salary) for anyone with or without kids or pets. I personally spend a lot of time running and biking the many Rochester trails, kayaking the endless rivers and streams, and frequenting the many restaurants, bars, and breweries (more often in non-COVID times).”
