My Freshmen Experience


Freshmen year is finally coming to a close here at Gallaudet with finals coming up in a bout a week. It has been a great experience for me as a freshman. I learned a lot about myself and the university itself. I began my freshman year as a starting wide receiver for the Bison football team. This took up much of my first semester, so it was a lot of work for me managing time in with football and school. I still got the best grades possible.

While here at Gallaudet, I made many new friends that I never knew I could do. They have always been a part of my college life socially and academically. They taught me a lot about myself. I was able to make time outside of school and football to hang out with them. I also got myself a girlfriend which is a nice addition to my social life.

Learning sign was probably the toughest experience for me. I had to put a lot of effort into it by attending ASL classes three days a week. Signing has helped me to better communicate with my teachers and fellow friends. I was a new signer before coming here, which encouraged me to want to learn sign language. So far this year, I have learned a lot regarding communication and background skills of signing.

This school year has been a wonderful experience for me as a freshman. It has taught me a lot, and I look forward to my future years here at Gallaudet.
