FreezeFest recap

Hello everyone!

Last weekend was the RIT annual FreezeFest event! All over campus there are games, shows, and a 5K fun run throughout the weekend. This year I went to the comedy show hosted by the College Activities Board (CAB). This year RIT hosted the comedian and actor in Silicon Valley and Deadpool, TJ Miller. I had a great time during the show and had memories of the comedians I went to see last year during FreezeFest.

Miller made the whole crowd laugh with jokes about the social aspect of college life and the reality of what happens after college. He even talked to us about existential crises and how to become more o.k. with death all while juggling! It was definitely a unique form of comedy that I haven’t seen before live or through websites that have comedy specials available to stream.

The show was how I celebrated FreezeFest, but many others participated in the 5K fun run event and the games that we had on campus with prizes available to win! Every year we also have a live ice sculpture outside on campus that is put on display for the whole weekend! This year in Rochester it’s been getting warmer faster, so I was concerned for our frozen RITchie, but he made it through the weekend:)

FreezeFest is always a great time, and I’m excited for SpringFest later in the semester when the weather warms up. There’s something for everybody during our yearly celebrations! What would you participate in?
