Yet again another week has finished and it’s Halloween soon, very exciting! What I think is shocking is the fact that it is already week 10….. meaning that if RIT was still on the quarter system this week it would be finals week. But luckily with semesters, it is just another week. My course load this year has been nice and balanced, without much overlap with major assignments between classes and all my professors are great. What I believe is that no matter how difficult a class is, a great professor can and will make you successful. Lucky for me, my major (ASLIE) has treated me with great professors who give great feedback and truly want me to succeed and become a great interpreter.

With Halloween just around the corner, campus has been very lively. Different groups and organizations are hosting different Halloween-themed activities. One group, NVZ (No Voice Zone-where students all around campus come together for one hour and turn their voices off to learn sign language) is hosting a Halloween-themed party which includes a costume party while learning different Halloween-related signs. Just like NVZ, Residence Life (which includes different RAs from the dorms and professional staff) will have a Halloween-themed meeting where costumes are encouraged. RIT offers many activities that relieve stress and take your mind off of classes.

Although RIT offers a ton of resources on campus to have fun, I was able to go with a friend off-campus for some food. We went to 5-Guys, as great the campus food is, 5-Guys was delicious and a great time. We also had some time to waste so we ended up stopping by a thrift store for fun, and just by spending $12 I was able to pick up a great shirt and even my Halloween costume.

That’s all from me this week, be sure to follow me as I continue to post more and more. Happy Halloween.
