It is snowing!

Hello all!

I hope you are all keeping warm! It is very chilly up here in Rochester! It has snowed a few times during the past few days! The other day was the first time this season! I looked out my window, and all the people in the surrounding buildings were outside whipping snowballs at each other. It was such a fun, festive activity for the first snow of the year! Here is a picture of the snow:

As for school work load, I believe this week is comparable to the “Week 8” of quarters. Like other ambassadors have mentioned, I have a paper due in each class, along with a couple presentations. I have been a very busy girl!

This weekend I am going to the Bills Game! (See earlier post for a picture of the sweatshirt I bought to wear!) I am really excited, although now that it is getting colder I am starting to realize how cold I am going to be when I am outside all day on Sunday! I will have to layer up! Let’s go Bills!

I am enrolling for classes next week. I have all the classes planned out that I want to take, hopefully I get all of them! I have a 1 pm enrollment time, so I should be alright. (You get assigned a time by your year level.) One of the classes I plan to take is a skiing class! It is at Bristol Mountain. You get a pass for all the Tuesday nights, and then you can go ahead and ski at your own pace. A friend and I are going to do it, so that will be a lot of fun. I also plan to take the Community Interpreting class, as a professional elective. I don’t know anything amount community interpreting, so I hope to learn a lot!

Until next time! Stay warm!

About Caroline

Major: American Sign Language—English Interpretation

Hometown: East Hampton, N.Y.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT because the ASL—English Interpretation program is incredible and I loved the idea of continuously improving my ASL skills because there are more than 1,300 deaf and hard-of-hearing students on campus!

Clubs/Activities: School and my job in the NTID Admissions Office doesn’t leave much free time, but I am involved in the Student Interpreting Association and a student member of GVRRID (Genesee Valley Region Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf).

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy traveling around the world—I have been to 12 countries, and I hope to check some more off my list soon! I also love to bike, swim and when I am home, paddle board every day!

What I Like Best About RIT: I love the strong sense of community here at RIT. With 15,000 undergrads at RIT, along with 1,300 deaf and hard-of-hearing students, it is large enough to have a variety of backgrounds, interests and opinions, but small enough to be able to spot a few familiar faces when you’re walking down the quarter mile. I also love that there are so many deaf and hard-of-hearing people on campus, so I can continuously use ASL and hone my skills. And best of all, my professors are amazing! They are willing to help me with anything I need, and that is really important to me. RIT is a very supportive environment and I love it!

Favorite T.V. Show: “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Lost” and “How I Met Your Mother.”

Fun Fact About Me: This summer I went to Italy for a study abroad program. It was one of the most amazing experiences and I can’t wait to go back!
