Cultural Awareness Celebration!

Please bring a form of dress from your own country with you when you come to the U.S.A. We will host a cultural awareness celebration here at Gallaudet where you can display your national dress. The celebration is comprised of a variety of events in which you can participate. The purpose is to create a culturally focused educational experience for you and your fellow students. The celebration also offers you the opportunity to teach U.S. students about your country.
