It Was a Wonderful Break!

Hello again,

We are back at school, getting back into the swing of things. It was so nice to have a break from school and be able to see my family. However, it was a bit weird today when I couldn’t sleep in, and had to go to class, rather than a eat homemade breakfast!I think it will take me a few days to get back into my regular schedule. I don’t have a few days though–the semester is coming to a close so quickly!

I had two Tthanksgivings this year, and I ate so much! I ate at 1 pm and then again at 4 pm! Guess I’ll have to get back into going to the gym:) I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

When I was home, my parents threw me a surprise birthday party! It is my birthday this coming weekend, and they wanted to celebrate it with me, so we did it a bit early. It was such an amazing time! All my family was there, including all my cousins that I don’t get to see often. It was catered by my favorite Italian restaurant and even had a DJ! I had no clue about the party either! It was a complete, and wonderful, surprise! I found out that my parents sent out invitations and everything! Here is a picture of the invite:

I haven’t gotten the photos yet from the party, but I will be sure to upload a few on my next post!

My roommates and I are going to decorate our apartment with Christmas decorations soon! I’ll be sure to show you guys the final product!

Well, I have to go do an interpreting assignment now! (It’s actually my first video where I will be interpreting in both ASL and English.) Wish me luck!

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!
