The sixth week

The week flew by!! I had couple of midterms last week and this week and my weekend is already almost gone.

“So many things to do and so little time” is true for the past couple of weeks. Last week was Deaf Jewish Awareness week and my club had an event every night from Monday through Thursday. All of my time was focused on making those event happen and they were successful. As president of WOLK, I am so proud of my club for making all of those events so successful!

Spring is here! How do I know that? It had been raining all week and because of that, some parts of campus are flooded. Mostly in the field because parts of the the campus is built on swamp land so some areas around the campus will have mini ponds for a while.

From last Thursday until today, Sunday, there is a play called Dog Sees God. The play is about Charlie Brown from the Peanut gang being a teenager. One of my roommates is a stage manager and my other roommate is one of the actors in the cast. The play was directed by a senior theater major. The play is his senior thesis and I have to applaud him because the play had a full house for all showings. I watched the play on Friday and it was a powerful play.

On an ending note, I am going to enjoy the beautiful days this week… I heard it is going to be in the 60’s and 70’s!!

 

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.
