The Final Round

So, the last quarter ever of my college career is here. It feels weird to tell people that I am done with college in the next three months. Time is ticking away and I am not sure how I feel about that. I am excited to see what the world has in store for me but at the same time I don’t want to leave RIT. I have so many good memories here at RIT.

Just now, I sent in one of my many applications for a summer internship. The internship application I just sent in is for a marine biology lab in Florida. I hope I will get a chance to work with either sea turtles or manatees!

I promised in one of my previous posts that I will post a picture from Pulse Happy Hour (PHH). Today is the first PHH of the spring quarter and everybody wore green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday.

About Danica

Name: Danica Metlay

Major: Biology

Hometown: Rochester, N.Y.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT because it’s a place where the hearing and deaf worlds come together. I wanted to have the experience of living and learning with both deaf and hearing students to better prepare me for the real world after I graduate. RIT also has great access services that are hard to find anyplace else.

Clubs/Activities: I’m current president of WOLK (Deaf Jewish Cultural Club) and work as an English tutor, NTID tour guide and intern at Hillel House. I used to be a committee member for the Rockfest Weekend, treasurer of Asian Deaf Club, an orientation assistant and intern at the Seneca Park Zoo.

Hobbies/Interests: I love traveling, reading books, skiing and hanging out with friends. I like to cook and bake, and I’m kind of addicted to Pinterest, because I enjoy finding new recipes and DIY projects to try.

What I like best about RIT: I like being busy and that’s easy to do at RIT. There always are events happening on the RIT campus and most of the time, they are accessible. I like that people at RIT are diverse, and I enjoy learning about their cultures and their various academic and personal interests.

Favorite T.V. Show: “Once Upon A Time.”

Fun Fact About Me: I love Mexican and Asian food, but I cannot stand eating spicy food.
