Happy Halloween!

Is it really the end of Week 10 already?! It feels like Week 1 was just last week! Boy, I’m telling you the course load, diving, and catching up on my sleep is making the time fly by my eyes!

I had a home meet last Saturday and my dad was able to come up to visit me, my new apartment, and watch my dive meet for the first time since August 2012! It was a great weekend to see him and catch up with everything at home. I surprised myself with my performance at the dive meet since I haven’t trained from August 2012 through September 2014! I am having a good feeling something amazing will come out of this some day! 🙂

The course load is beginning to pile up with upcoming exams every week, projects due, and we’ll be studying for finals before we know it! Oh, the shopping cart is opening this coming Monday to start considering which classes to register for the spring semester of 2015! I’m excited to register and take all the cool classes!

Happy Halloween, everybody. Hope you have a cool costume or plans for the spooky night! I think I will be a minion from Despicable Me!

About Natalie

Major: Biomedical Science

Hometown: Rockville, Md.

Why I Chose RIT: Before discovering what RIT has to offer academically and socially, I had a great experience meeting some of my great friends from Explore Your Future (EYF) 2011. I met numerous people who are just like me and I loved the campus right from the beginning. The interpreting, C-print and notetaking services are beyond my wildest dreams at RIT, providing everything you need for success.

Clubs/Activities: I am a diver on the RIT Swimming and Diving team and an NLC math and physics tutor. I also am a part of the Rock Climbing club and Premedical Student Association. There are still many more activities that I want to explore!

Hobbies/Interests: Besides diving, I enjoy swimming, playing ball, biking, skiing, painting and traveling. In other words, being outside on a sunny day!

What I Like Best About RIT: This place has everything you could possibly dream of, both on and off campus. You can get the rural, suburban and urban feeling within a 15-minute radius of RIT. RIT provides amazing concerts, many club sports/varsity teams, hundreds of clubs, off-campus events and every kind of support you could think of. I fell in love with my major because the professors are so engaged, knowledgeable and have a great desire to help and get to know their students. My general chemistry professor taught more than 200 students in a lecture, and he still remembers me two years later! The campus has much more to offer than I originally thought as a newbie.

Favorite T.V. Show: I enjoy watching “How I Met Your Mother,” “Full House,” “Boy Meets World” and “MasterChef.”

Fun fact about me: I did a handstand somersault off of a 10-meter platform during my training for national diving competitions in high school.
