Upcoming Events

*MARCH 18TH EVENT (BELOW) CANCELLED: The University of Rochester is implementing guidance intended to limit the impact of COVID-19 on our campus and in our region to protect our communities, and has decided that more stringent social distancing measures must be taken until the end of the semester, which includes classes being transitioned to online learning for the remainder of the semester with many of our students not returning to campus, but instead staying at their home residences, as well as restricting all university sponsored events (on and off campus). Because of these measures, the following event has been cancelled.
