Gallaudet University Regional Academic Bowls offer exciting mental competition between the best and brightest deaf and hard of hearing high school students. They also present a golden opportunity to meet alumni and friends after the competitions at one of the Gallaudet Clubs. The Gallaudet Club event is an informal gathering that GUAA chapters and the Home Office occasionally co-host. It provides a ripe opportunity to catch up with one another and learn about what's happening at Gallaudet.
Conceived in 1997, the Gallaudet University Academic Bowl for Deaf and Hard of Hearing High School Students is run by Gallaudet University. The Academic Bowls foster the pursuit of academic excellence, promote a spirit of academic competition and good sportsmanship among participants, and encourage social opportunities for collegiality among students. It is also an excellent venue for Gallaudet to market its programs and recruit students. This year is particularly special because President Cordano plans to attend each of these events, which will be her first alumni events as President since her term began on January 1, 2016. This will be a wonderful opportunity for alumni to meet her and give her a warm welcome to the alumni community.
