I’m from Texas – a small town that no one has heard of, and I grew up with a hearing family.
Now, I’m here at Gallaudet University. I’ve met people from all over the world,
all from different backgrounds.
Now, all of us are together in one community of learning!
Sometimes you may think you know everything, but no! Gallaudet University has more to teach you.
The world out there is big, but Gallaudet University is bigger!
Opportunities aren’t limited to just the classroom – there’s so much more outside of the classroom.
I know I can’t get this experience anywhere else. Only at Gallaudet University.
Why did I come here? For a real college experience that will prepare me for life beyond college.
For example, I can lead in student organizations…
become a captain and play NCAA level sports…
join the debate team and college bowl team.
Also, there’s a big audience of students, faculty, and staff…
Where you can pitch your business idea at Bison Tank
Work with over 100 departments with deaf leaders and become one…
Is that all we have? No! We have a lot of students from all over,
where you can make friends and connect – even at 2 in the morning!
Here at Gallaudet University, we belong.
Connecting with empathy means that we can influence…
Fully understand and learn from each other to grow.
Through this, we learn to problem solve,
but that only comes with the full academic experience at Gallaudet University.
No matter where you are now, no matter your identity – signing,
mainstreamed, deaf school – you will learn your way. I know I have!
