April- A in April stands for “A week of midterms”


This has been a busy week, since I had two midterms to take this week. It is hard to believe that it is April already since I am exhausted with this quarter. I seem to have a lot on my “to-do” list to take care of before I graduate. My schedule doesn’t seems to get much busier than this or in the upcoming week. Extra review classes to prepare for my upcoming FE exam, driving to PA to take the exam next weekend, then flying to St. Louis for a conference, then a huge conference that my major is hosting, all within the next two weeks. Doing all of that, plus searching for a job and doing interviews makes it all seem very stressful right now. It actually is for me and I am rarely stressed out. The warmer weather is coming soon and that is making me more anxious to enjoy it for all it is worth. All I can say is that I have 5 more weeks left before walking across the stage. In the end, it will be worth it when I hold my college degree in my hand!

I think I am going to head out and go country line dancing tonight to relieve my stress!

Enjoy your week!



About Stephen

Name: Stephen Sweet

Major: Civil Engineering Technology

Hometown: Adrian, Mich.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT because of the large hard-of-hearing and deaf population. RIT's strong accreditation program for my major was another factor why I chose to come to RIT.

Clubs/Activities: Cued Speech Club, RIT American Society of Civil Engineers, RIT Cost Estimating Team, RIT Rock Climbing Club and RIT Country Line Dancing Club.

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, riding motorcycles, fixing cars/vehicles, working out, hanging out with friends. Anything that keeps me busy!

What I like Best About RIT: The best part of RIT is the ability to interact with deaf and hard-of-hearing people as well as hearing people all on one campus. The opportunities I get at RIT as a result of these interactions are second to none.

Favorite T.V. Show: “Hawaii Five-0,” “Person of Interest” and “Big Bang Theory.”

Fun Fact About Me: I competed in a Tough Mudder obstacle course event in Ohio this past spring.
