Favorite Workshop

Published by under Uncategorized

Although the workshops we had to go to seemed like a hassle at the time I appreciate all of them now. My favorite though was the Rubin museum, it meant the most for me because the religion I practice(Hinduism) was prominently represented and a lot of artwork was used. Outside of this factor I enjoyed it still because I learned a lot about the Buddhist culture. The artwork was definitely intriguing especially to think that these defined and detailed sculptures were made so long ago with little help of technology. I think this trip also made me more open to museums, when I was younger I always thought museums as places that old people go to. Since I am now the “old people” I used to talk about I guess I do like museums. This is a good workshop also because it was interactive it wasn’t like the news literacy workshop where we sat and waited to the end. Rather we were able to pick up the headsets and learn about what we were looking at and experience another culture.

First Semester Baruch

Published by under Uncategorized

This picture of a basketball helps me best describe my time here at Baruch this far. This is mainly because I feel as though my life surrounds the ball. For more reasons than one, firstly my first semester has been a social one because I’ve made a lot of new friends outside of the cluster we are in. I say that basketball is a great reason for this, going downstairs and just playing the sport with so many different people and faces was a experience in of itself. After playing we would go out and eat and talk and just have fun. In addition to basketball helping me make friends it surprisingly helped me keep ontop of my work. When I finished playing ball I would go to the library and study. playing basketball helps activate my body so that I am awake and aware. Also I cough up a lot of credit to basketball for keeping me as fit as I am because the running up and down the court for hours really gets me into cardio which I probably wouldn’t do on a treadmill of some boring machine. Basketball has made my time at Baruch enjoyable. image.jpeg
