Sweater Weather is Almost Here

Hi guys!
What a beautiful start to the fall, with autumn leaves finally starting to peek through; the fall “sweaters of coziness” returning; and of course, the delicious smells of hot cider & pumpkin spice lattes returning to overtake our campus once more!

But truly, one of the best things about fall around here are the events and festivals that take place on weekends–one of my favorites being the pumpkin patches and corn mazes at Stoke Farms! If you’re not already planning a trip to the breathtakingly scenic Letchworth State Park, definitely try to experience the harvest fest at Stoke Farms. With hot cider and cider doughnuts in hand–actually, the mention of their cider doughnuts here should be enough to let you fill in the rest with your imagination. 🙂

About Sophie

Major: Medical Illustration

Hometown: Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. (yes, I hail from the legendary town of the "Headless Horseman!")

Why I Chose RIT: I've grown up in a mainstreamed setting all my life as a cochlear implant wearer who could "hear" but never truly enough. RIT bridged the gap between these two worlds. Not to mention the overwhelming support and services provided, the RIT family made me feel so at home!

Clubs/Activities: The Running/Multi-Sport club lets me meet and swim with other swimmers, which is a great way to take the edge off after a long day! I'm also active in the Medical Illustrators Club- where we obsess over anatomical illustrations together- and the Outing Club, which has allowed me to explore the tons of beautiful hiking areas around the Finger Lakes region.

Hobbies/Interests: I love painting and thinking creatively, working in hospital environments, participating in fundraising events, swimming, yoga and hiking.

What I Like Best About RIT: There are always so many activities and events happening on campus. I love the student body and school spirit here!

Favorite T.V Show: "Modern Family," "Breaking Bad," "Scrubs" and "How I Met Your Mother." I love making HIMYM references!

Fun Fact about me: I have a couple of "famous" people in my family; I'm the ninth great -granddaughter of William Bradford, a founder and governor of the Plymouth Colony settlement, and a direct descendent of the Swedish King, Gustav III.
