"I chose Gallaudet because there really is no other place like Gallaudet in the world. Gallaudet provides so many students like me opportunities to experience rich personal growth, a stimulating academic environment and success career wise. What better place is there for all of that to happen than Washington, D.C.?"
"I had a challenging experience in a hearing college without interpreters, and I wanted to take advantage of direct teaching interaction between the student and the teacher, as well as opportunities in developing my academic success. I chose chemistry as my major because I want to attend pharmacy school."
"I chose Gallaudet because of the direct communication offered to deaf people and the strong deaf studies program. Also, Gallaudet is like a family to me. I enjoy teaching sign language and want to give back to the deaf community. I want to make sure hearing people learn ASL appropriately."
"I wanted an academic experience that would lead me to a career that was dynamic, challenging and stimulating. Gallaudet's pre-law program exceeds all these expectations. I've learned how to look at situations from numerous perspectives, gained a significant understanding of law, expanded my logical reasoning and critical thinking skills, and acquired a newfound appreciation for politics."
Daqian Dang's passion for mathematics and a desire for a fully accessible collegiate experience brought him halfway around the world to Washington, D.C., to enroll at Gallaudet. His long-term goal is to return to China and use his knowledge in statistics to advocate for services such as videophones, interpreting and scholarships for the Chinese deaf community. "Providing data and statistics for our needs will help buttress our request for essential services and increase accessibility for deaf people in China."
"I chose Gallaudet because I knew this place would help me increase my leadership skills, while enabling me to build networks. I want to be able to invest in the best strategies for deaf children's education and improving their skills in sports so that I can send them off to Gallaudet to become student-athletes. Also, I want to be a role model and inspire deaf children in Mississippi."
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
