In October 2013, students from Michelle McAuliffe’s Digital Photography class organized and documented a campus photo with people standing in 150 formations. Photographers Taylor Moser and John Mason captured the moment of jubilation as people signed “1 5 0” and then waved hands in applause.


Gallaudet’s 150th celebration is made possible by generous sponsorship support.
