NYSSD Welcomes Gallaudet University

The New York State School for the Deaf will play host to the men's and women's basketball teams when they make their trip north. On January 25th Gallaudet is scheduled to play SUNY IT and then they head to Cobleskill for games on Sunday, January 26th.

The teams are scheduled to arrive late Friday afternoon where they will have dinner with the NYSSD students. The teams will hold a workout session Friday evening and then spend some time interacting with NYSSD students.

The purpose is to expose the students from NYSSD to the possibilities beyond high school. To allow deaf and hard of hearing college students an opportunity to share their life experiences with our students and to show them that college is a possibility. We are very excited to have the opportunity to host this event.
