Lacrosse in This Crazy Cold?

Almost every day when I walked past the grassy field known as “The Turf” to my apartment on campus, I saw the RIT lacrosse team players doing practices or playing a game against guest teams from other colleges. Every time I saw them, I was always amazed at how they could play in this weather! The lacrosse season began in March, I think, but I had seen them practiced lacrosse in February. So the daily temperature has been below or a little above 32 degrees Fahrenheit! How do they even go out in this freezing cold and play? They even played when it was snowing (not during a blizzard!) or when snow was on the ground. You can see some snow was plowed away to the sides of the Turf in the picture seen below. It just amazes me how these RIT lacrosse players could endure playing in this cold because I don’t think I can do this. Can you?

About Michelle

Name: Michelle Chung

Major: Applied Mathematics

Hometown:  Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT because I believe that RIT has the best of everything I was looking for in a college. It provides the education and access services that I need to maximize my learning. It has a very large deaf community as well as excellent diversity of students and staff with different ethnic and academic backgrounds. I also like that RIT is not far from home. 

Clubs/Activities: Student advisor for Asian Deaf Club.

Hobbies/Interests: Watching movies, eating, listening to music and biking.

What I Like Best About RIT: The diversity is what I like best about RIT. It never gets boring, and I can meet new people every day on campus. Because people here are exposed to such diversity on campus, they become more open-minded about others, and gain understanding from those people who have taught them who they are and what they do. 

Favorite T.V. Show: I don’t have any favorite television shows. I watch whatever is on T.V. A few shows that are addicting to watch at this moment are “Tattoo Nightmares” and “Pit Bulls and Parolees.”

Fun Fact About Me: I just love to eat yummy food of different cuisines, especially from Asia and Europe. In the future, if I continue to travel and search for the best local dishes or places to eat, I might start a food blog.
