Roving Reporter: As a lifelong “Gallaudetian,”* what is your advice to new students and employees on the best ways to get to know the Gallaudet community?

There is no place like Gallaudet. Get out of your comfort zone and be involved by being an active and contributing community member. Try something new often and you’ll be surprised who you meet and what you learn.

The best way to get to know the community is to attend the many events we have on campus! It could be a sporting event, or plays and performances at Elstad. Of course, check out daily to find out what is happening. There is always something going on campus.

Take time to chat with long-time employees and alumni who are proud Gallaudetians! Michael Weinstock, graduate of MSSD and Gallaudet University and current director of the Department of Athletics.
