Freezefest Weekend! :)


4th Annual FreezeFest is an event that RIT hosts that includes a variety of events that should not to be missed! This year, those highlighted events included comedian Joel McHale, Global Union’s Unification, CAB’s Rail Jam, and an RIT first – an Extreme Pogo Stick demo!

I always attend the Global Union Unification every year to support the Asian Deaf Club where I was a part of the former executive board for years. It is a celebration of cultural diversity through performances from various cultural clubs on campus that compete. It was fun!

After that, my friends convinced me to check out the event for extreme pogo stick which I have never heard of before, and it was pretty fun to watch the professional stunt team give us a demo!

And that’s all for the weekend! 🙂
