Alumni eNewsletter: ATTENTION NAD Conference Attendees! Alumni to share spirit by hosting events at NAD (Archives)
With Gallaudet being a Liberty Sponsor at the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) conference in Philadelphia, Pa., July 7-11, the Office of Alumni Relations has been assisting in organizing events for alumni. The office staff hopes you will not only join them at these events and bring on the Gallaudet spirit, but also spread the word to Gallaudet alumni about these events.
Here is a sample of what has been planned:
Both Alumni Relations and the Gallaudet University Alumni Association (GUAA) will have a booth, so be sure to come visit in the exhibit area (exhibit #418), especially if you have a burning question you would like to ask about updates at Gallaudet, the status of your membership, or just to say hi. There will also be a booth shared by the Admissions Office and the College of Professional Studies and Outreach, and one shared by the Department of Social Work and the Gallaudet Academic Technology and Library Services.
On Thursday, July 8 there will be a pep rally for alumni from 7-7:30 p.m., right before the College Bowl, in the lobby of the ballroom where the College Bowl will be held. Wear your Gallaudet colors and show the others who rocks! There will be a Mighty Bison to revive the alumni spirit plus shakers whcih will be given out to kick off the evening.
On Friday morning, July 9, Gallaudet is sponsoring a breakfast for alumni and friends in the Liberty C Ballroom. The Ballroom is located in the Marriott Convention Center next door, in the same building where the Hard Rock Cafe is. It is connected to the Marriott via a skywalk. Breakfast will be from 7-8:30 a.m., followed by a short program where you will have an opportunity to meet President Hurwitz, be transported back to your Gallaudet days by witnessing the famous Bison Song, see the Mighty Bison, and win a few door prizes while fueling up for the busy day ahead of you.
If you have any questions about any of these events, please feel free to stop by our booth in the exhibit area.
We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia! Dont forget to bring on those Gallaudet colors!
