RIT is going to adopt tigers tomorrow!

Wow, it’s already the end of Week 9. I was supposed to have a Core Glutes and Abs fitness class today, but the instructor cancelled it for some personal reason. So I don’t have classes today, and Week 9 is officially over! I can’t believe how time is flying past so quickly It’s more scarier for graduating students to think of how many days we have left until graduation. Some are excited for graduation to get out of college, but many, including me, also don’t want the fun of being in college to end so soon, and we’ll miss our friends!

Anyways, I saw an advertising poster on campus.


I thought it was pretty cool and nice that RIT is going to adopt two tigers tomorrow. According to a friend of mine who work in CAB (College Activities Board), RIT is going to adopt two tigers at the Seneca Park Zoo as ZooParents at the Conservation Stewards level. Unfortunately, they will have to be living at the zoo, or otherwise it would be bizarre (yet freaking awesome) to have them moving around on campus for college events! All the funds from the trip to the zoo will go to funding for the tigers’ enrichment, keepers, health, toys, and so on. Pretty neat!

I would like to go, but unfortunately, I already have a plan to do tomorrow. Let’s visit the soon-to-be-a-RITer tigers at the zoo somedays!

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.
