During DPN, the Gallaudet campus transformed into a living classroom for more than 300 impressionable high school students who were enrolled at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf, which cohabitates the campus. Three of these students and a residence educator will recount how the experience and the lessons they gained that week in 1988 continue to impact their lives today.
