Alumni eNewsletter: Academic Bowl regional competitions and Gallaudet Club events planned (Archives)

Regional competitions for the 13th Annual National Academic Bowl for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students will begin early next year. The top three teams from each region will square off in the finals at Gallaudet on April 24-27.

Conceived in 1997, the National Academic Bowl is sponsored by Gallaudet University. The purpose is to foster the pursuit of academic excellence, promote a spirit of academic competition and good sportsmanship, and encourage social opportunities for collegiality among students.

Alumni can "hit two birds with one stone" by attending one of the regional competitions for the Academic Bowl. The regional bowls offer both exciting competitions among the best and brightest deaf and hard of hearing high school students AND an opportunity to meet alumni and friends after the competitions at Gallaudet Clubs.

It is an informal gathering and provides a great opportunity to catch up with other alumni and learn about what's happening at Gallaudet. Gallaudet Club events are currently in the planning stages so keep an eye out for more information. Updates will be posted both on the alumni web and in the alumni e-newsletter.
