A Fun and Exciting College Spring Break

It was a fun and exciting college spring break…with my family! I know, you were probably expecting me to say that I spent a wild college spring break with friends at a beach. I did something better. I made a trip out of traveling to a warm place by visiting both my boyfriend’s and my own families. We both started the trip by driving to my parents’ house in Maryland on Friday, then flew to Fort Lauderdale for two nights to visit my grandmother I haven’t see in six years! Then Kyle and I drove to Miami to visit the city before heading to Marco Island for two nights with Kyle’s aunt/uncle/cousin for his 21st birthday. After his birthday, we drove to Clearwater to see his grandmother for one night before heading to St. Augustine to see my aunt/uncle/cousins for two nights. On the last day, we flew back to Maryland for two nights with my parents and brother before driving back to RIT. So, it has been a blast seeing most of Florida, seeing our families again, and getting some warmth we needed!

Beside the spring break and returning to RIT for the beginning of crazy-busy April, I have finally started rock climbing regularly! Oh, how I missed it so much! I noticed a lot of new changes in the red barn which is impressive! I’m definitely going to climb a lot more the next few weeks before this summer at the humongous facility near my house.

Today, was supposedly one of the most busiest open house events at RIT/NTID.  And it was busy, but I had fun! I really enjoyed meeting new students and families, answering questions, and mentioning about some of the oddest things we (the Student Ambassadors) see on campus such as Humans Vs. Zombies! It was fun to see eager students knowing I was in their position a few years ago!

About Natalie

Major: Biomedical Science

Hometown: Rockville, Md.

Why I Chose RIT: Before discovering what RIT has to offer academically and socially, I had a great experience meeting some of my great friends from Explore Your Future (EYF) 2011. I met numerous people who are just like me and I loved the campus right from the beginning. The interpreting, C-print and notetaking services are beyond my wildest dreams at RIT, providing everything you need for success.

Clubs/Activities: I am a diver on the RIT Swimming and Diving team and an NLC math and physics tutor. I also am a part of the Rock Climbing club and Premedical Student Association. There are still many more activities that I want to explore!

Hobbies/Interests: Besides diving, I enjoy swimming, playing ball, biking, skiing, painting and traveling. In other words, being outside on a sunny day!

What I Like Best About RIT: This place has everything you could possibly dream of, both on and off campus. You can get the rural, suburban and urban feeling within a 15-minute radius of RIT. RIT provides amazing concerts, many club sports/varsity teams, hundreds of clubs, off-campus events and every kind of support you could think of. I fell in love with my major because the professors are so engaged, knowledgeable and have a great desire to help and get to know their students. My general chemistry professor taught more than 200 students in a lecture, and he still remembers me two years later! The campus has much more to offer than I originally thought as a newbie.

Favorite T.V. Show: I enjoy watching “How I Met Your Mother,” “Full House,” “Boy Meets World” and “MasterChef.”

Fun fact about me: I did a handstand somersault off of a 10-meter platform during my training for national diving competitions in high school.
