Gallaudet University Reviews
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.
I love how Deaf Culture is such an integral part of the campus life. I am able to express myself very openly, and almost everyone is extremely accepting and compassionate towards one another. My only complaints would be in regards to the cost of attending this university full time, and some issues regarding living on campus. Other than that, if you apply yourself and try your best, you will more than likely thrive at this school!
