Tenth Week and Halloween!

Hello there!

My name is Justin Simmons, and I am a third-year Packaging Science major.  I am so excited to post my very first blog here!

I still can’t believe this is the tenth week of the semester! Because this is the tenth week, like everyone else here, I spent my time working on projects and homework. So far so good with, this being my first and as well RIT’s first time working in the semester system. I think semesters are awesome because we actually have more time to learn the materials as compared to the quarter system. Also, next week would have been be finials week if we were still on quarters! Thank goodness that we do not have to worry about that just yet.

Yesterday was Halloween and it is a big deal here on the RIT campus. Oddly enough my favorite part of Halloween is Chipotles! Every year on Halloween you can get a burrito, salad, or tacos for just $3! Food is a huge deal for us being broke college students. Forget the candy just drop a burrito in the bag… HA! Don’t get me wrong we also love dressing up as our favorite characters too. So this year, I decided to be the Old Spice guy! All my friends absolutely loved it!


About Justin

Major: Packaging Science

Hometown: Pickerington, Ohio

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT because of the co-op program, and it was one of only three colleges in the nation that offers an undergraduate program in Packaging Science.  

Clubs/Activities: Cru, a Christian organization, and the Institution of Packaging Professionals, an organization on campus for RIT Packaging Science students.

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy running, reading good novels, discussing politics and hanging out with friends. 

What I Like Best About RIT: The small student to faculty ratio at RIT. I have found that the smaller class sizes have allowed me to have good relationships with many of my professors. 

Favorite T.V. Show: My favorite TV shows are “Mad Men,” “Newsroom” and “Walking Dead.”  

Fun fact about me: I am a news junkie, and watch some sort of news network daily.
