Brick City News: Season 4 Episode 4

Eunyoung: Hi, everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the Homecoming
activities! I’m Eunyoung, and you’re watching Brick
City News. Kendell: I’m Kendell, and I’m definitely
enjoying Homecoming. How about you? Eunyoung: It’s always a good time! Don’t forget, tomorrow night is the hockey
game against Merrimack! There’s a shuttle leaving from S Lot by
Global Village starting at 5 p.m. that’ll get you to the Blue Cross Arena
and back! For more information, check out the Brick
City Homecoming site: Kendell: Of course, I want to remind you that I’m starring in the upcoming play “I and You,” which is being produced by NTID’s Performing Arts program and the College of Liberal Arts! Come see me in the LBJ 1510 Lab Theatre the
weekend of October 25th! Eunyoung: NTID’s Counseling and Academic
Advising Services is hosting a panel discussion about VR on
November 4th. If you’re curious about how your VR support
works, this is a great event to go to! VR counselors will be discussing their process
and what they can do to help. The panel discussion will be in CSD-1300/1310
7-9 p.m. on the 4th. Kendell: The same week, SLT will host 3 days
of events honoring and supporting Deaf Native Week. The NTID Presenter Series will happen on November
5th from 4-6 p.m. and November 6th, from 6-8 p.m. in CSD-300/1310. Also, on November 7th, from 7-9 p.m. in LBJ-2590. Keep an eye out for more details. This will happen during the ARTiculating Deaf
Experiences Conference November 6-9, so you know things will be pretty interesting! Eunyoung: Then on November 8, Mia Sanchez,
who graduated from RIT/NTID, is giving a talk for the RIT ASL and Deaf
Studies Community Center! Head to SDC-1300/1310 12-1 p.m. to see her talk, “What Color is Your Soul?” She’ll discuss her experiences as a Deaf
person of color within the broader context of privilege, social injustice and language
deprivation. This should be a worthwhile experience. Kendell: On the same day, the Center for Leadership
and Civic Engagement is providing transportation to the Strong Museum of Play for College Night! In case you didn’t know, the museum is one
of Rochester’s most well-known attractions, and this is a chance to play around after
hours! No little kids on the pinball machines! You can buy tickets here: CLCE is providing a shuttle leaving from the Sentinel loop, in front of the SAU, starting at 8 p.m. It will go until the last pickup at the museum
at 11 p.m. Eunyoung: Now, we have a pretty special event
to announce, but we’re going to turn it over to a guest. Here it goes! Keven Poore: Hello. I’m Keven Poore, and I’m the director of Substance and Alcohol Intervention Services for the Deaf, or SAISD, here at RIT/NTID. We provide information and education related
to drugs, alcohol and other addictions. Plus, we work with students here on campus,
and off-campus communities as well. This is a very exciting year, as we’re celebrating
40 years of providing services! We are celebrating our 40th anniversary with
a very special evening. Please join us on December 5th for a special
talk from Marlee Matlin. She is a deaf, Academy Award-winning actress. And she herself is celebrating 32 years of
sobriety! She will discuss her story and experience
as well as her book, “I’ll Scream Later.” More details will come in the next couple
months— keep your eyes open and watch for that information. Kendell: Finally, have you ever heard of the
Ombuds office? They work for everyone on campus, helping
to resolve conflict in a confidential way. For example, if you are a student who is struggling
to work with an office here on campus, the Ombuds office can mediate between you
and them to work out a solution to your problem. It’s all confidential and nothing will go
on anyone’s record. They’re not formal and won’t take sides. They just want to see everyone treated fairly,
and can be really useful! But don’t just take our word for it. Ashley Meyer, an associate Ombuds, just opened
an NTID office! She’s in LBJ-2264. Stop by during walk-in hours on Monday afternoons
and Wednesday mornings and say hi! If you need to make an appointment, feel free
to e-mail or call her at: And yes, she signs! Eunyoung: Sounds pretty useful! Kendell: Yes, plus, it’ll be cool to see
Marlee Matlin in person! Well, that’s all for this episode. I’m Kendell. Thank you for watching Brick City News. Eunyoung: And I’m Eunyoung. Have a safe and fun Homecoming, and we’ll
see you in a couple of weeks!
