What A BusyBee Weekend!

I can’t believe that there are only 18 days left until I will be graduating from RIT! The reality is starting to hit me harder and harder and all I can do is to grab all the opportunities I can find on campus before I leave and take advantage of them! And here I am back once again on the right track! I apologize that I wasn’t able to find the time to post in the past week, but I have so much to share with you all!

As you know I am a current student advisor for Asian Deaf Club, and for the past 6 years of being here at RIT/NTID Asian Deaf Club has been my second home. Asian Deaf Club’s mission is to give the opportunity to Asian and non-Asian students to have equal benefits of sharing a diversity of cultures and values among others and promote cross-cultural understanding among students with diverse backgrounds. I was a secretary when I joined my freshman year and then became president the following year. Time goes by fast! So, last Saturday was Asian Deaf Club’s 24th Annual Banquet and it was actually the last time I will attend the banquet and I will definitely miss ADC. But I will DEFINITELY be coming to the 25th Anniversary Banquet since it will be a big deal where all the alumni can come and get together for a reunion. It will be so great to see all my former Eboards and Board of Directors. I have to applaud the current Eboard/banquet committee who worked so hard to make this banquet so successful. I am very proud of these people! I believe that the banquet was successful and everyone seemed very happy…even alumni enjoyed it very much!


Here is the picture of ADC’s current eboards, banquet committee and the alumuni!

Yesterday, my roommates and I decided to go out and explore downtown Rochester since two of us will be graduating this May and luckily it was a beautiful day out there! We reserved a table at The Owl House! The Owl House?! What is that? It is only a place that serves all vegan and vegetarian foods! I saw the rating on Yelps and it had 4 out of 5 stars! So we decided to check it out and the foods were real good, I think. Haha, it is hard to determine what is good and what is not good since I am not vegetarian, I do eat both meat and vegetables but I enjoyed my meal!

-1A lot of my friends know me that I always take pictures of foods so here is a snapshot of the foods! 😀

You should definitely check all the clubs on campus to gain your experiences and leadership roles and of course check out all the places in downtown Rochester, too! 😀
