Snowed in on a Wednesday and off to Spring Break

Well, it’s four days before I leave for home to nice and sunny New Jersey which is supposed to be in the 60s that week of spring break, compared to the brisk 20s we have outside here in Rochester right now. It should be great.

We had really great weather last Tuesday. It was warm, people were outside, spring was coming. Then all of a sudden on Wednesday, one of the worst storms arrived that I’ve ever seen. It’s amazing how much snow fell in a single day…22 inches in one day, crazy stuff. I was snowed in and spent all day with friends while RIT was closed, which is very rare, so it was a nice surprise.

Last Friday we had the March Open House. It went great! I met many wonderful people, We gave campus tours and held a student panel. For those of you who do not know what this is, it is when some of the student ambassadors (like me) answer questions from the visiting high school students such as what is there to do in Rochester, what happens on campus, etc. I enjoyed that a lot.

Right now I’m in high intensity work mode because I have a lot of work to do before classes this week, due to the snow day and spring break coming up. There are projects to finish, exams to take, time for me to get to work.

So I’ll see you all later!

About Dylan

Major: Industrial Design

Hometown: Jackson, N.J.

Why I Chose RIT: I’ve wanted to pursue my dreams of being an Industrial Designer since I was a freshman in high school. When I discovered that RIT had deaf students and one of the best Industrial Design programs in the country, I knew RIT was right for me.

Clubs/Activities: Swim, go to the gym and create art.

Hobbies/Interests: A hobby of mine is restoring old cars. I have a 1966 Ford truck that I drive at home, and I started work on a 1950 Chevy coupe over the summer. It’s a true passion of mine. I'm also interested in motorcycles. 

What I like Best About RIT: The best part of RIT is interacting with deaf and hard-of-hearing people as well as hearing people all on one campus. The opportunities I get at RIT as a result of these interactions are second to none.

Favorite T.V. Show: “Doctor Who,” “Lost,” “Breaking Bad” and “Smallville.”

Fun Fact About Me: I travel frequently. I've been to several countries including Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Portugal, to name a few.
