-Im moving to Rochester for Grad school and I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the events, people, culture of the city. I wanted to attend graduate school in a town that had little distraction in comparison to having done undergrad at a school and in a town with way too many distractions.
 
-So what experiences have you had or what things have you seen?

I went when I was young, I remember a lot of white people with funny accents.
 
I don't think there will be a lot of distractions

-Im sorry, I meant to say that the reason that I had chosen to go to Grad school in Rochester is because of the fact that I knew that there wasnt much going  on in the town to distract me.
-I have visited there once and have received much of my advice in relation to events and "happenings" from yt people , much of which I have not found appealing.
 
- I wanted to now what things other people have done for entertainment while there or anything in relation to a "scene" that there may be in Rochester.

Which school are going to? RIT, Brockport, St John Fisher???
It depends on the event and where it is. If its outside of the city then it will probably be a nice breeze. If its in the city of Rochester then I wouldn't go, they fight too much especially at the Hispanic festival, always shoot outs or fights. The lilac festival recently ended and they acted a fool there too. If you can avoid it, don't take the RTS bus, teens have been going around jumping people and getting into fights downtown....The library is a nice place. If you ever visit the one downtown they have  a secret little room behind some bookshelves on the 3rd floor. Love that little room lol.

-I will be at the University of Rochester. Now that you say this whole thing about the buses, I have no clue as to how I will get around because I will not be bringing a car with me. I chose to live somewhere close to the UofR bus line because people have complained about how the snow/salt have rusyed their cars.
-The only thing that I keep hearing about is this Lilac festival and now that you're telling me not to go idk whats left lol.

Theres other activities you just have to watch the news (YNN), look on the Rochester website or check out Rochester facebook page they post stuff up there. Like a week or two ago they had a bicycling event for a teacher that was killed riding her bike. They have events with the fire department. In the winter/autumn theres a festival I forgot the name but its pretty fun people sculptice sculptures, everyone walking down the streeting having fun. A lot of the good stuff is outside of the city in my opinion. In the city they do have plays, strong museum, science museum, theres a few clubs, restaurants...near the U of R I don't really know that area well I just drive past it but its close to Henrietta and since you will be living near the U of  R you probably wont have to go downtown unless its occasionly. Just check out Henrietta when you have time they have a lot of shopping centers, you can go to the movies or the mall..Joans.

I'm from Syracuse and most of my friends attended MCC, RIT and St. John Fischer.  I know that Rochester has a lot of festivals in the summer but the only scene that I was in to when I was there was the clubs and concerts.
