The campus is alive again after a much needed break and it’s already week two! I’ve enrolled in 16 credits while working 20 hours a week. I’ve got my hands full this semester! My classes are fairly laid back and I’d have to say my glass blowing class is by far my favorite class this semester, working with my hands forming pieces of art gives me a nice break from my other lecture-based courses. I’m involved heavily in sports this semester with intramural ultimate frisbee and Deaf Volleyball Association which is student run at RIT/NTID! Every week we have games competing against one another vying for a championship and bragging rights.
Week two also means another week of No Voice Zone (where students learn sign language and about Deaf culture), which I run along with my co-coordinator. We’ve seen steady numbers of students coming every week fall semester and we’re hoping those numbers will stay stable this spring. We’ve seen some students from local colleges in the area come to learn sign language, and it pleases us knowing that not just RIT students are eager to learn!
I’m currently browsing graduate school programs in higher education administration and every time I look at a program I get more and more excited about the future and what it holds. I’ve loved my time at RIT so far, so I decided I wanted to pursue a career in the college environment and help future students the way RIT has helped me.
