Gallaudet University was not initially in the cards for me as a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) student. Indeed, I enrolled at another school for study engineering and physics. Classroom learning through interpreters was fatiguing; my study groups even more so. It was not until I visited my friends at Gallaudet that I felt as if a new world had opened up for me. Although small compared to my original school, Gallaudet had outstanding science classrooms and laboratories. It also offered a rich cultural and linguistic heritage and optimal access to communication. I transferred immediately. My rigorous coursework and my internships have confirmed that I made the right decision.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
