ayala920's Xanga When I was a Gallaudet student I heard a lot about "bilingualism." Gallaudet, in an effort to comply with MSCHE's accreditation standards, is in the process of making the university “bilingual.” To do this, they've begun providing ASL interpretations of many of the written announcements on the website, such as the website for the new SLCC...

ayala920's Xanga For those of you who have somehow missed the boat on the live webcasts of hockey games at the 2007 Winter Deaflympics, check out DeafNation TV's live coverage of hockey games this week.

What most people don't know is how and why I came to be [...]

I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this in a message, but it's been confirmed. DPS and the PPD broke through the gate this morning and bulldozed the area, including tents with people sleeping inside. The front lawn is now covered [...]

College Hall lockdown
ayala920's Xanga College Hall was locked down once again last night at approximately 12:30 am. But it appears that the lockdown has already ended.Personally, I didn't support the lockdown of College Hall. I understand the frustrations many students have because of the lack of concern from the administration, but locking down College Hall was not the answer. Protestors have been [...]

I can't believe how many people are here9:25- To say this is an emotional experience would be an understatement. I can't believe how many people are here. I never realized the amount of support we [...]

Plans for Monday
ayala920's Xanga We held a student-only meeting tonight. Originally we planned to meet outside, then we moved to Fowler Hall, but the huge crowd forced us to move to Marketplace (in my opinion, the perfect place to hold a meeting). Lots was discussed, but I'm keeping hush on the contents of the meeting for now. Read Mishkazen's blog for more information a little later.Plans for [...]
