Naz Girl About Town

Dig this? Then it’s time to try that!

Maybe Greek philosophers cum mathematicians – like trusty ol’ Pythagoras (b. 570 BCE, d. 500-490 BCE) – were on to something.

It stands to reason that: If you dig a certain form of entertainment, then you’re likely to enjoy a crash course in related venues unbeknownst to you. The one obvious exclusion may be coffee. If you’re a Starbucks addict, you’ll probably turn up your nose at Tim Horton’s or Dunkin’ Donuts.

Wait – maybe that theory only applies to me? If you’re a barista who’s steeped in the world of cafe artistry? Well, then! A mere whiff of those three may make you physically ill. Generic coffee talk aside, there’s a great big world out there beyond the confines of the Naz campus.

And, gosh darn it, this girl about town wants you to know that they exist! Read on to learn more about the hidden gems, hallowed halls and rockin’ haunts that await you in the ROC. (Oh, that? That’s insider speak for “Rochester.”) I mean, it’s Spring. So, spring on out there and explore life off campus!
