Life at Gallaudet

There’s an excitement at Gallaudet that comes from so many people ready to share their diverse backgrounds and open their eyes to new possibilities. With more than 1,000 undergraduates and direct communication in at least two languages, you’ll feel welcome and ready to get involved immediately. Play varsity or intramural soccer. Join the Gallaudet Dance Company, ThinkBiz or Sisters of Color. Collaborate on a project with a professor or have lunch together. Hop on the Metro with some friends and explore the nation’s capital. Whether you are new to American Sign Language or English, or fluent in both, you will learn and do more than you may ever have imagined.
