What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice i would give myself as a highschool senior would be to do the exact same thing i already have done. go to the community college to start off because its cheaper, but i would have liked to tell myself to apply for more scholarships ahead of time, i didnt know you could apply for scholarships so early, i didnt know there was so many , you just had to take the initiative to look for them and fill them out. I would tell myself to not spend as much money, dont go out to eat even though you feel like you dont have time to make a meal between work and school, but that 5 dollars here and there would save up and help pay for college. Though i have finished 2 years of college and am currently dept free, I would have loved for someone to tell me to save my money better.College may seem a lot at first, but once you get in the swing of things its not as hard an overwhelming as it feels at first, just relax, take a breath, and make sure you set your priorities, you'll get through it.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the fact that it is a very diverse school. people from all over, different backgrounds, different growing up cultures. Gallaudet is a university for the Deaf, it has students from all over the country most are Deaf or hard of hearing, some are hearing but have relations with those who are Deaf or hard of hearing. But one thing is in common with everyone in this school, they all know about the Deaf and its culture and history, they all understand the difficulties and advantages of Deaf and hard of hearing.

What kind of person should attend this school?

typically Deaf or hard of hearing students, and of course those hearing students who grew up with their first language as american sign language because their parents are deaf, or students who know american sign language and want to pursue a carreer in interpreting.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you visit the college prior to enrolling. Make sure that there is a campus setting that makes you feel at home, having a nice wide campus helps keep you from over stressing. Also an area where there are plently of new spaces to study at, that way you do not always go to the same place, its always nice to start new.

What's unique about your campus?

My school is a University for those who are Deaf and/or HardOfHearing. There are so many other thing that are offered for those with physical and mental disabilities. They offer the chance for every student to have the right to be taught equally.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person who is Dear HardOfHearing, or those who want to have a career that has to do anything with deaf adults or children.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise parents to make a concerted effort to accompany their child on a campus search when they start to apply for college. It is very important that parents have a comfortable feel for the surroundings and the atmosphere where their child will spend the majority of their time for the next two to four years. I think parents have more insight into the education process and are able to conduct conversations and possibly raise questions that the student might not even think about. It is important for parents to stay in touch with the student throughout the entire process, even after selection of the school. Parents are the first role model in a childs life and I dont think that their child ever stops looking to them for guidance and assistance.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any person with a hearing disability would benefit from Galluadet University

Pick a college that has the major you desire and when you enroll into a college, make the best out of it, but do BALANCE both academics and social life!!!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had went to the YLC so I could have made friends prior to enrolling at Gallaudet University.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The dorms are the worst places to live on campus. They are old and outdated, they need to be renovated into the modern dorms.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Figure out what your priorites are about the schools you attend; do you want a social life, discover your identity, work toward a career goal or the cultural experience from the city/area the school's in? Once you narrow those down you can look at which schools meet those criteria and go from there. Also a visit to the campus is strongly suggested- an overnight visit. That way you can get a peek of what the nightlife is like, even if it's from an outsider's point of view. Also you could ask to meet with a professor and perhaps ask for a sample of a syllabus just to get a feel of what a course's expectations are like. That can make a difference for a syllabus can reveal the amount of homeworks, teaching style and rules in a classroom. Some schools are a great deal more flexible than others. Others impose more homeworks, projects or some prefer a seminar style discussion. If you're interested in an extracurricular activity, go to their offices and find out how it operates and see if you can get involved. All of those factors can help one decide.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who wants to avoid alcohol but feels weak in that area. A person who wants to focus on their academic career without distractions- there will be a lot!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The fact that people place more of a weight on how Deaf one was over anything else, over their character, personality, intelligence and more. If you weren't with the mainstream on what "deaf power" meant, you weren't a true Deaf person. It drove me NUTS. Just because I wanted to attend classes instead of protesting, it made me less of a person in their eyes. All because I wanted to get my money's worth in terms of education. Also the social life revolves around alcohol- are you legal, how much can you consume and more.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The best way I can describe my school is a deaf institution that was established since 1864. The VERY first deaf university in the world in the United States. This it the best university I have ever chosen, and I am still attending now. Gallaudet University have over fifty major of studies for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. Gallaudet cares about the student and they want them to succeed in school and hopefully they get a job in their future.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice for the parents and the future students, go and visit all of the college that your child wants to go. For the students, do not be afraid to ask questions about the college that you want to go. Go and talk to some students and the professors too. Check on-line when they're having open house for students. Ask the Acedemic Advisors what kind of majors they have and what do they teach in those courses. Also, for the students, try not to think that you have to homework all the time but its not true. You will have the best time of your life. you will make a lot of friends there and they will help you through it. You wont feel left out in college, you just have to put your mind into your school work and how bad you want your degree. Your grades really matter in school and for your future. Go to college is a good idea for your next step in your life.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I mostly tell my deaf friends about, how many different kinds of sign language there at Gallaudet. Also, how there are diversity of people from all over the world and friends from different countries. I tell my friends, from home, how easy to make friends there and how the professors are flexable with the students. The university is really a awesome place to go for deaf and hard-of-hearing students and how we have our own culture in school and we have our own world there and freedom.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit the university/college before you decide where to attend! Make sure you know what you want to be in future, so you will be able to find which university/college to fit you the most. Check with your finanical aid to be able to pay and able to prepare ahead of time. It is not always easy to find student loan or anything that will pay you full. When you enroll university/college you pick, I strongly encourage you to participate events as much as you can to grab every opportunity to experience at university/college! Those years are only a dot of your life, grab it! Basically, make a right choice.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

for students during your high school year, i suggest you to do a tour at variety of colleges you are thinking about going so you could make the right decision before going and talk about it with your counselor at high school. for parents to help kids with the price for the college and support your kids' decision what they want to do.... and mail some goodies from home so we, students, could think of our home! :-)

What's unique about your campus?

the best thing about this school is that we all are able to access easily with our communication by sign language. i love the feeling of unity with the students and staffs and big spirit at this school. i especially like that we all are in the same world... deaf, hard of hearing, and interpreters are everywhere on the campus just like i am... forgetting how hard times we have in the real world because gallaudet university offers us easy access, friendly enviroment, and all help we need.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

i know some deaf students dont go to gallaudet university because of the majors they dont have.. i think it would be nice if this school offers more majors so more deaf or hard of hearing students could come to this school.
