Homecoming - October 23 - 25, 2014

Welcome alumni and guests! There are a lot of exciting activities and events planned for you to enjoy and opportunities to reconnect with Gallaudet and old friends!

You may notice some events that have traditionally been part of the Homecoming schedule are not mentioned in this year's Homecoming schedule. This is because these events took place during the Gallaudet Reunion in July 2014. These events will resume next year during the 2015 Homecoming when we return to a normal Homecoming schedule.
