The increasingly digital CT

It became apparent that  to dedicate more time to the actual content of the paper and to reduce our waste problems, we would need to reduce our printing schedule.

Lack of an Iran deal means war

While I understand that the University is a private research institution, our research could be doing so much more if it was brought into the Rochester community, which is in great need.

While topics such as coding might seem difficult to STEM students, non-STEM students have to face similar problems in learning material such as the International Phonetics Alphabet.

The Campus Times has been around since 1873. Since then, we have stood as an avenue for members of the UR community to talk about what really matters to them and to learn about things they might never have considered before. We inform, entertain, and hold accountable.
