The University of Rochester, founded in 1850, is a private research university located in Rochester, N.Y., (pop. 212,000) on the south shore of Lake Ontario.
The University offers a unique undergraduate curriculum, with no required courses, that emphasizes a broad liberal education through majors, minors and course “clusters”— a Rochester innovation—in the three main areas of knowledge: humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences/engineering.
The University (on the web at rochester.edu) is also home to the world-renowned Eastman School of Music, as well as graduate professional schools of business, education, medicine, and nursing.
