A Busy Month

One month has passed. What’s new? A lot of things! Lately, I haven’t had any weekend of sitting on my couch, watching some television and staying in. It seems like every weekend since the Triathlon, I’ve been occupied by many activities including biking with friends, going camping in Allegany State Park, driving down to Maryland to visit my family for my parents’ birthdays, and going out to eat. 🙂 It seems like there’s always so much to do in this Rochester area, and I love it!

The classes are going extremely well, but the tests are creeping up this week and next week! Ahh! Not only the tests are coming up, but the diving practices just started and we’ll have practices eight times a week. Still not enough, which is why my coach told us to do our own work-outs in the gym everyday to get stronger for the season. Isn’t he crazy, but I love him.

I’m sharing a photo of the crew who went camping two weekends ago, and it was a blast. We had dinners by the fire both nights, played games all night, and hiked up a really long trail. As you can see, we’re all dressed down so comfortably and having a great time. 🙂 We’re missing Rebecca, who was taking the picture, and she’s an awesome girl! Will definitely go camping again!Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 8.50.37 PM

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.
