Gallaudet University Reviews
Gally allowed me to reach my potential by providing the tools, environment and assistance needed to thrive as a student. It is the only place in the world that provides for the deaf community. I am a dual sport(football, track and field) dual impaired college athlete and still be able to succeed in the classroom. The accommodations, food and campus life are very friendly and fun. My instructers are helpful and knowledgeable in the respective areas. I being dual impaired, was able to get the additional assistance needed to help me succeed. Currently at a 3.871 GPA in school looking to graduate next spring.
From my experience at attending Gallaudet University. My first year attending! Gallaudet has not failed to impress me when attending to get an education that is accommodated well for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Gallaudet University is the only university in the world that is solely a Deaf University. The education I received during my first year has been nothing short yet of rigorous. I am attending to pursue my degree in Business Administration and I am thrilled to look forward to attending as a Sophomore this year for the Fall Semester.
Gallaudet University is amazing for the social aspect for many deaf and hard of hearing individuals. As well as sports, academics, and internship opportunities. Gallaudet University is the only deaf University in United States of America that is dedicated fully to deaf and hard of hearing individuals. I love the social space at Gallaudet because of how English and ASL are inclusive, allowing everyone to interact with each other anywhere on campus. In classrooms, I am able to understand all the professors without having to worry about misunderstanding them if I were using an interpreter.
