A bi-weekly V-log that promotes events at RIT/NTID.
Hello, I’m Sara Smania.
This is the 10th episode of Brick City News! That’s quite a milestone!
Let’s get started.
First, Ellie’s 5K is scheduled for Sunday, March 5th.
It’s a free run/walk event in memory of Ellie Rosenfield,
a beloved member of the NTID community who sadly passed away in 2010.
Ellie’s Place in the SDC is named after her.
Pre-registration is closed,
but you can still register at Grace Watson Hall
starting at 8 a.m.
on the day of the 5K.
The run/walk starts at
10 a.m., and every half mile on the course will feature a new, fun physical activity!
Come join the community and remember a wonderful woman!
Rochester Bridges to the Doctorate is welcoming
Dr. Marie Coppola to campus on Wednesday, March 8th!
Dr. Coppola is a professor at the University of Connecticut who studies language
She runs a non-profit called “Manos Unidas”—“Hands Together” that advocates
for equal access to language and education for
deaf children in Nicaragua. Pretty cool!
She will give a presentation about her professional background, called
“From engineering to emerging language: My CODA journey from MIT to Nicaragua.”
Join us at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8th in SDC-1310!
Are you ready for Spring Break? It’s coming up soon!
