Spring is Here!

Hello all!

I believe the last time I posted was before break, so I have a lot to say now. So I’ll start with my break. After plans with a few of my friends to go to a beach house fell through, I decided to just go home to Maryland for break. The most exciting part was bringing my girlfriend home to meet my family. She signs great so she could communicate with my parents and even dogs well. (I even have six deaf dogs at home). We ended up visiting downtown Frederick (where I’m from), D.C., and the Baltimore aquarium. The aquarium was a ton of fun because I hadn’t been there for five or six years, and my girlfriend was chosen to pet the dolphin during the presentation. So overall, the break was fun and exciting, but the downside being I was just as tired coming back to campus as I was when I left.

It’s great to be back on campus again and to see all my friends, some more than than others. But after a few cold days, I think spring is officially back to RIT now and I couldn’t be more excited. We have Springfest, Imagine RIT, and warm weather ahead, so the last part of the semester should go by fast!

I also had an opportunity to work the accepted student open house recently, and see the new interpreting students coming into the program, and they were very excited to be here. It’s always exciting to see students again after their open house visits. It’s refreshing. But it wasn’t just and open house for interpreting students, but all accepted students at RIT. So there were a lot of accepted students roaming campus, great presentations for each of the colleges, as well as some free t-shirts. And who doesn’t like free t-shirts?

With spring right around the corner, the spring RIT athletic teams have started their practices and games. Our men’s club soccer team had their first game this past weekend, and sadly I couldn’t attend that game. We ended up tying Fredonia’s club team 1-1 (a good result to start the spring). Other teams on campus also have started, such as our top-ranked lacrosse team. So it’ll be exciting to see how far they can go this year.

That’s all for now everyone. I’ll talk to you all again in two weeks’ time.
