I always love the opportunity to explore a new city. When I was an admissions counselor, that exploration was my favorite part of the job, ending up in a completely new city, with nothing better to do but make the most of it (and, you know, recruit future art students). While some of the cities I visited came with great reputations (Austin! Seattle!) some came with preconceptions (Detroit). Relinquishing control over where I was assigned not only made me a pretty decent traveler, but opened my mind to places I normally wouldn't consider traveling to. All this to say, Rochester, NY? Delightful. While our time there was short, we had so much fun with Jen, Kev, their girls, and Jen's sister Amy. And, yes, it's safe to say that Finley and Chris were kindred spirits. Oh my heart.
