It’s the end of week 8 and just three days ago, we had a weather with a temperature of 61 degrees and today, Friday, we are back in the 20’s with snow! Lots of snow!

We sometimes call Rochester the bipolar weather because we can never predict the weather. You could watch the weatherman say it will rain. The majority of the time, it’s the opposite of rain. It could be sun, snow, hail, whatever you can think of!

This is how much snow we got overnight! I had to clean my car off to go do some errands so this is a lot of snow! But then in Rochester, this is VERY normal. We still have school. In the past 30 years, we’ve only had school close once. Yep, once! Crazy right?! Trust me, I have wished that school would be close but nope!

Well, I’m off to go play in the snow! Maybe go snowboarding!

Bye from Rochester!


About Stephanie

Major: International Hospitality and Service Management

Hometown: Jackson, N.J.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT for a few reasons. One reason is because of the outstanding access services. RIT has more than 100 interpreters on campus that are available for classes, events and meetings for clubs and organizations. Another reason is that I am a big hockey fan and both RIT men’s and women's hockey teams are Division I. I bleed orange and brown (RIT’s school colors)! Also, the RIT community is amazing. We get so much support from everyone, and I like that the campus is diverse.

Clubs/Activities: I am involved with DBA (Deaf Basketball Association), and assistant chairperson of Brickfest, a traditional sports competition weekend among deaf students.

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy dancing, listening to music, reading, shopping, learning, watching movies and hanging out with my friends.

What I Like Best About RIT: What I like best about RIT is the outstanding diversity we have on campus. I am able to fit in both the deaf and hearing worlds because I come from a hearing family. I like the fact that I am able use both languages that I was taught growing up—English and American Sign Language.

Favorite T.V. Show: I don't have one, but I enjoy watching T.V. shows on the TLC channel.

Fun fact about me: I've been to more Caribbean islands than individual states in the U.S., because I’ve taken nine cruises.
