Dover Street Market/Museum (Academic)

I went to the Dover Street Market with other member of the seminar. The Dover Street Market serves as a market alongside a museum. it features multiple types of clothing and shoes. some of the stuff is for sale while some is just art work. DSM has 8 full floors filled with clothes and art for people to explore. it was a fun experience for me because I had never been there before and it felt fun to explore fashion. I liked some of the stuff there. one of the highlights for me was the Supreme Wall. The Supreme Wall was filled with skateboards and various clothing from the brand Supreme. there were various brands spread out across the eight floors and it was cool to see how fashion had evolved over the years. it was also cool so see different brands that people wear and to encounter brands that I see everyday on the streets. it was very fun to with my friends as it gave us a chance to see what each other liked. we tried on various types and clothes and fooled around. it was fun learning experience. I had tons of fun. Sameer and I even bought Supreme keychains for them to serve as mementoes.

Career Workshop: Study Abroad Fair

Earlier this year, I figured out that my major was going to be International Business. I always have liked to travel so I knew I wanted to do something with traveling. I also know a couple people in that field and they said it was great. so I decided that International Business was a  good place to begin. To further my knowledge I decided to go to a Study Abroad Fair. I attended the study abroad fair with Mitchell. when I got to the fair, I was very impressed with the amount of booths they had set up. I saw various countries there such as India, England, Ecuador, Spain and France. Each country had something different to offer. The country I was most intrigued was actually Denmark. It had a relatively low cost of living. this is something different as the cost of living in New York is higher than most places. it also looked a nice place to live. the other country I was intrigued by was India. I was intrigued by India because my parents are from India and it would be easy from me to travel there. I speak the language there and it would be easy to interact with the people there. It is also a country that connects with America. It is were most of the IT people come from these days so it is a familiar connection. this relates to my career because these are all countries I might visit one day as a part of my job. so I should know countries that I might have a preference traveling to. I also wanted to interact with people from different countries to see what type of people I would be in contact with. the study abroad fair was an informative fair. it was a fun event to attend.

Student Life: Baruch Sikhs

For my first Baruch Club experience, I joined a club that I am very familiar with. I joined the club known as the United Sikh Association or Baruch Sikhs. I had wanted to join this club when I first attended orientation but I couldn’t find them. I wanted to join this club because I felt I would fit right in. Being Sikh is a very part of life. So I wanted to join a club where I could meet other people like me. I wanted to find a place where I could fit right in with people who had similar backgrounds like me. I first come into contact with the club at the Starbucks across the street. As I walked into Starbucks with my other classmates, I got pulled over to the side by one of the club leaders. he recognized I was Sikh by my turban and asked if I  was interested in joining the club. I told him I was and Dilpreet gave me the information for the first club meeting. I went to the meeting on 9/12/17 and it was very welcoming. I had walked in a little late but I proceeded to take a seat quietly. As I listened in I learned that the club was based on the Punjabi culture and Sikh ideas. they shared similar ideas of giving charity and having cultural events such as the Bhangra Bash. After explaining the goals and ideals of the club, everyone introduced themselves. everyone was very welcoming and nice. it felt like I had already know these people for a while. we were speaking in our native language of Punjab and I connected with many people. I made a few new friends. it was a great experience for me because I  didn’t know anyone who attended Baruch from my high school . This  club allowed me to meet people who knew exactly where I came from and the goals I had. it was a great overall experience and I plan to be part of the club for all 4 years of my Baruch career. 

Introduction Post

My name is Jaskaran Singh, but I prefer to be called Jazz. A fun fact about myself is that I love cars and driving. I’ve had a passion for cars ever since I was little. My intended major is International Business. I hope to travel around the world while working. One thing I liked about the book, ” The Book of Unknown Americans”, was that the plot was relevant to current events. Many families are moving to the United States as opportunity to escape many problems back home. One thing I disliked about the book was the transition of the book. It went from a book about immigration to a cliché love saga. I thought the author should’ve built upon the struggles of immigration even if you come here legally.
