3 Events on Friday Night!

It was kind crazy because so many people invited me to go with them to check out those events on the weekend and the thing that I didn’t realized that all the events were happening on the same night! And I ACTUALLY went to all 3 events 😛 I decided to do this because it is my last year being here at RIT (will be graduating this May) and it is the only opportunity that I can grab all the experiences with my friends!

The first event I went is Deaf Basketball Association (DBA), it is one of the intramural sports on campus that tends host in winter quarter, where all of Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Hearing students to get together and play basketball every weekend. Can you imagine that I never been to DBA for the past few years? It was my second time to went there to see my friends play. Unfortunately I was able to stay for less than an hour to attend other event, maybe next time I will stay longer! Here’s the snapshot I took a picture of them playing!

The second event I went is Asian Culture Society 12th Annual Fashion Show, it is also one of organizations on campus that spread and educate the awareness of the Asian culture and heritage to the students who are interested. I have always attended every year to see their fashion show because I enjoyed watching their runaway that shows their traditional clothing from variety of Asian cultures and performances as well. Of course, every year is different, it was different this time. I really enjoyed watching those adorable little girls danced! I have also took snapshot the picture for you to enjoy!

Unfortunately I missed the first hour but I really love to watch them dance and listening to the loud music that give a wonderful beat! I recalled it was pretty different from last year where I went to BreakDance competition, it was so packed and very close-up to watch them performed! Here’s another snapshop I took! As you see the last two photos was the winner of the dance team that giving us the finale performance!
