In September of 2013, Gallaudet University began a 15-month long celebration of its 150th anniversary. Many events, presentations, and creative works were sponsored that highlighted the rich and diverse history of the university, including a Charter Day Festival and Symposium in April 2014 and in July, a Gallaudet Reunion extravaganza! Though the festivities are now over, the celebration continues as we look forward to another 150 years.
