Week 6!

It’s Thursday night of week 6. Boy, this quarter is FLYING!

However, next year we will start following semesters schedule, which means 15 weeks instead of 10! This will be a different experience for me because the past 4 years, I have been following quarters system. I will only experience the semester system for 1 year then I graduate! Go Class of 2014!

I am actually looking forward into the semesters conversion because it’s new, different AND I get to work on my senior project for 15 weeks instead of 10. How awesome is that?!?! Although we do get 1 month of winter break. I wonder what I’ll do. I have had thoughts about doing a study abroad program or maybe just relax and go snowboarding in the mountains (if I can find one near me).

That is all for today’s post! See you next time!

About Stephanie

Major: International Hospitality and Service Management

Hometown: Jackson, N.J.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT for a few reasons. One reason is because of the outstanding access services. RIT has more than 100 interpreters on campus that are available for classes, events and meetings for clubs and organizations. Another reason is that I am a big hockey fan and both RIT men’s and women's hockey teams are Division I. I bleed orange and brown (RIT’s school colors)! Also, the RIT community is amazing. We get so much support from everyone, and I like that the campus is diverse.

Clubs/Activities: I am involved with DBA (Deaf Basketball Association), and assistant chairperson of Brickfest, a traditional sports competition weekend among deaf students.

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy dancing, listening to music, reading, shopping, learning, watching movies and hanging out with my friends.

What I Like Best About RIT: What I like best about RIT is the outstanding diversity we have on campus. I am able to fit in both the deaf and hearing worlds because I come from a hearing family. I like the fact that I am able use both languages that I was taught growing up—English and American Sign Language.

Favorite T.V. Show: I don't have one, but I enjoy watching T.V. shows on the TLC channel.

Fun fact about me: I've been to more Caribbean islands than individual states in the U.S., because I’ve taken nine cruises.
