Class Field Trip

Another post from me!

I thought it would be cool to share that I went on a field trip with a class, Tropical Ecology (the same class that I will give a presentation tomorrow).

I went to a conservatory then had a lunch with my class and after that, we went to the zoo. We would get names of plants and we searched for plants in the conservatory. When we found our plants, we had to take pictures of them and research about them when we got home. I got navel orange tree, Georgia’s Pearl, and shaving brush tree,  they’re pretty cool plants.

In the conservatory, there are quail chicks running around. They’re so cute, balls of feathers!

Quail Chicks!!

After the lunch, we went to the zoo and we picked our own bird and animal to research about. We needed to pick animals and take picture of them. I picked dikkop (the bird) and ocelot (super cute cat). I don’t have any good picture of ocetlot, he was hiding and sleeping.



For my major, I often go on class field trips to places relating to my courses. I never complain, I love class field trips and it is nice to go off campus for a class sometimes.

About Danica

Name: Danica Metlay

Major: Biology

Hometown: Rochester, N.Y.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT because it’s a place where the hearing and deaf worlds come together. I wanted to have the experience of living and learning with both deaf and hearing students to better prepare me for the real world after I graduate. RIT also has great access services that are hard to find anyplace else.

Clubs/Activities: I’m current president of WOLK (Deaf Jewish Cultural Club) and work as an English tutor, NTID tour guide and intern at Hillel House. I used to be a committee member for the Rockfest Weekend, treasurer of Asian Deaf Club, an orientation assistant and intern at the Seneca Park Zoo.

Hobbies/Interests: I love traveling, reading books, skiing and hanging out with friends. I like to cook and bake, and I’m kind of addicted to Pinterest, because I enjoy finding new recipes and DIY projects to try.

What I like best about RIT: I like being busy and that’s easy to do at RIT. There always are events happening on the RIT campus and most of the time, they are accessible. I like that people at RIT are diverse, and I enjoy learning about their cultures and their various academic and personal interests.

Favorite T.V. Show: “Once Upon A Time.”

Fun Fact About Me: I love Mexican and Asian food, but I cannot stand eating spicy food.
