Charades!

That sounds fun doesn’t it? Well, it’s more hysterical watching someone trying to explain what they saw on their paper. What the game is about, one person has to stand in front of a group of people and describe what they have without signing, just gesture and movements! Like for example, Safari, that’s a tough word to describe but she’ll have to show movements of like lions and giraffes, and a bus, etc. That’s tough but it’s fun, and again, funny!

Here is a picture below that I took…

Photo: Playing charades with the senators! #100happydays day 23!

The girl standing in the photo in the blue shirt that says NTID Business Club is the one trying to explain what she saw on the paper she selected. The guy in the orange shirt is my cross-registered senator (a student government member who represents deaf and hard-of-hearing students in the other colleges of RIT) making sure they are following the rules and not cheating!

Why is this here? Well, every other Friday, there’s always an event in the CSD SDC (Student Development Center). There is either a PHH (Pulse Happy Hour) or BHH (Bam Happy Hour).

Pulse Happy Hour is more of mix and mingle with students exhibiting at tables with their organization such as NTID Business Club or Asian Deaf Club, etc. But for Bam Happy Hour, it’s all games. No tables, just mix and mingle and play games and have fun!

So, charades was a BHH event hosted by Student Government with the guy in the orange shirt. He’s not the only one running the “show” but he’s one of them.

I look forward to more BHH as I love games! Competition is a part of me, so I like to compete and win!

Okay, I have to go back to school. I had a little bit of fun but now, the fun is over.

Have a good week!

About Stephanie

Major: International Hospitality and Service Management

Hometown: Jackson, N.J.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT for a few reasons. One reason is because of the outstanding access services. RIT has more than 100 interpreters on campus that are available for classes, events and meetings for clubs and organizations. Another reason is that I am a big hockey fan and both RIT men’s and women's hockey teams are Division I. I bleed orange and brown (RIT’s school colors)! Also, the RIT community is amazing. We get so much support from everyone, and I like that the campus is diverse.

Clubs/Activities: I am involved with DBA (Deaf Basketball Association), and assistant chairperson of Brickfest, a traditional sports competition weekend among deaf students.

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy dancing, listening to music, reading, shopping, learning, watching movies and hanging out with my friends.

What I Like Best About RIT: What I like best about RIT is the outstanding diversity we have on campus. I am able to fit in both the deaf and hearing worlds because I come from a hearing family. I like the fact that I am able use both languages that I was taught growing up—English and American Sign Language.

Favorite T.V. Show: I don't have one, but I enjoy watching T.V. shows on the TLC channel.

Fun fact about me: I've been to more Caribbean islands than individual states in the U.S., because I’ve taken nine cruises.
