Re: “College Blog: Blogging as a steppingstone

Hi Clorinda, currently the college blog is not being updated. The blog was run by interns in early 2013, but has since not received much attention due to time and resources. But thank you for drawing our attention back to it. We're looking into how we could efficiently use this as a platform for our interns again.

Re: “Finding college art in the big city

Julie, You and other students are STILL welcome to enter A Photographer's Path 16, and I'll waive any late fees. Entry fee is $20 for one, two or three photo works. Images should be at least 11x14 "ish" matted in white or off-white (where applicable) and framed in black metal frames. Get them in by the 25th and you're in. You'll be in the good company of 100 or so other photographers including some from RIT. This is a great juried show.
Would love to put you and other students on my mailing list to keep you informed of our exhibit opportunities through out the year. We've scheduled a big reception on Sunday March 17 3-6pm. Even if you don't submit, come see what we do and make sure to find me in the crowd. Food, punch, live jazz, and it's free on reception day!

Re: “Finding college art in the big city

Julie - you and any of the students could have entered the Photographer's Path show at High Falls Fine Art Gallery. This public show for photography is now in its 16th year. Entry deadline was today. I urge you to connect with all of the fine galleries and photography resources in Rochester. Your first stop should be Community Darkroom, part of the Genesee Center for the Arts & Education at 713 Monroe Avenue in Rochester.

Re: “College Blog: The textbook tango

I never bought books from the Bookstore on campus. I used Alibris.com and Dealoz.com. Saved a quarter to half off my books. And people shouldn't join fraternties/sororities. They're a waste of time and their "networking" opportunities are never worth the trade off.

Re: “College Blog: The textbook tango

There are still options for us students to keep up with education. Like for me, I also download e-books from http://bookboon.com/ as the site offers a wide-range of e-books for free that are very helpful for my research and reports.

Re: “College Blog: The textbook tango

Lauren, your readers may also be interested in our new service. We search (including those you mentioned and many more sites) to find the best prices and give you options that include what the buyback price is today. Last month we also launched a safe and secure student-to-student marketplace for local and national sales. By the end of the term, it will be filled with textbooks. The market price changes quickly, so you need to search both our marketplace and use the search engine. Jeff Lorton http://www.campusshift.com/core2/TextbookS…

Re: “College Blog: The textbook tango

So if you want to save the largest amount on your textbooks, you should consider buying used online via a price comparison website such as FindersCheapers.com, then reselling them directly to students once the quarter is over. The downside is that you will have to get your own free seller account on Amazon Marketplace or Half.com and package and ship the books as each one is purchased. It can also take quite awhile to sell textbooks in your major if there aren't very many students in the country taking the same classes. The upside is the potential to recoup most of your textbook expenses. I've written about this and more in the article at the bottom of this page:

Re: “College Blog: The textbook tango

Textbook used to put a big hole in my budget too, until I decided to go all digital and hunt down e-versions of the required books. Admittedly, not all were available, but I still managed to save a lot of cash. Probably the most helpful site I found is http://bookboon.com/. The site hosts thousands of textbooks in pdf format, all of which are 100% free and legal for download, so there are no copyright issues either. I recommend it to everyone.

Re: “College Blog: Deaf in Rochester

Bonnie Greenberg - what could merchants do to make you feel more welcome? I recommend complaining to a manager if an employee treats you poorly (like that bouncer). Best wishes for your studies!

Re: “Gimme pizza: considering the student diet

This is an excellent point. Perhaps the standard "how to adjust to college life" class should include some healthy eating suggestions for incoming students.

Re: “The downside to the college bubble

You have the rest of your life to live wherever you want, in a city or suburb or farm country. A few years in a little college bubble is part of the experience.

Re: “The downside to the college bubble

Crime. Only if you wander into the southwest or northeast sections of town. Downtown is safe, as is the East End, South Wedge and Upper Monroe Neighborhoods. As for getting out; get a car, you need it around here. If you can't afford a car, get a job. It's not the publicly-funded bus service's job to shuttle you around town. College students are adults. They should try acting like it, instead of little punks.

Re: “The downside to the college bubble

Great article on a obvious problem. I hear this reiterated by tons of RIT students who move into the city. I also know professors who say its common to hear staff discourage trips into the city because of crime. There are not enough connections between our colleges and our urban life.
