Rachel Tassoni

CHST Senator

Year: 3rd
Major: Diagnostic Medical Sonography
Hometown: Chepachet, RI

I come from a small town in Rhode Island, so attending a school as diverse as RIT is a completely new, enriching experience for me. I consider myself a motivated person, so I’m always trying new things, which has introduced me to many different people. Being a part of multiple clubs on campus, like Habitat for Humanity and the Ultrasound Student Association, as well as volunteering, is something I strive for, as I love helping other people. In my free time I enjoy scrapbooking, staying active, participating in intramural sports and going to the gym when I can.

I am very excited this year to spend a lot of the time in the Ultrasound Scanning Lab. It’s the first time so far in my schooling that I actually get to practice scanning for the real world, and it will be fun to spend a lot of time with people in my major and get to know them. Additionally I’m excited to be a part of SG and help make change on campus and help be the voice for students.

This summer I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark. The six weeks of class and additional week of traveling is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, as I met so many people and learned so much. Below is a picture of me at the top of Arthur’s Seat, a volcano in Edinburgh, Scotland that I climbed as part of my Positive Psychology Class.
