Logo: Congressional Basketball Classic
The 12th Congressional Basketball Classic will be held this year on March 28 at 7 p.m. in the Field House. Admission is free. Congressman Ron Kind (D-Wisc.) will again serve as captain of the Dunkin’ Donkeys (Democrats) and Congressman Mike Oxley (R-Ohio) will be the captain of the Fighting Elephants (Republicans). The 2004 Classic was a nail-biter. At first, the Democrats were winning; then, the Republicans pulled ahead. Just as time was running out, the Democrats scored, winning 26-25. This was the first time the Democrats had won since 1991. Can they win again? For over a decade the Republicans were undefeated. Are they a force that can’t be beaten twice in a row? See for yourself!
Rakow winners, bradbury, jacques, abenchuchan, feldman
Winners of the 2005 Lillian Gourley Rakow Creative Writing Contest, which recognizes promising writers, were presented their awards by CLAST Dean Karen Kimmel on December 13. Pictured with Jill Bradbury (right), competition coordinator and assistant professor of English, are (from second right): senior Tabitha Jacques, first place ($400), for her collected poems; sophomore Alexander Abenchuchan, second place ($300), for his short story "Leather"; and freshman Joshua Feldman, third place ($200), for his short story "Homecoming.” The creative writing awards were established in memory of Rakow, a member of the Class of 1928, by her family in 1982.
TTY, VP, VP-A-Thon, development, duhon, suiter, destefano, bowman
The TTY/VP-A-Thon, sponsored by the Development Office, was held December 4 to December 15 and featured 15 VPs and eight TTYs. It was the Development Office’s first time using VPs in this event, and it helped make the event a big success. Students, faculty, and staff volunteers contacted over 4,000 alumni and friends of Gallaudet throughout the United States and raised over $15,000 in pledges. Front row - Patricia Bowman, Debby DeStefano, Richard Suiter, Sherry Duhon; and back row—Samuel Sonnenstrahl show their enthusiasm at a bank of VPs.
FYS Learning Community
The First Year Seminar (FYS) Learning Community gathers for a photo during its final meeting of the fall semester on December 12. The meeting provided an opportunity for members debrief about the curriculum and to share feedback on curriculum revisions for the ’06 fall term. Twenty-four sections of FYS were taught this fall--all but three of the classes in learning communities, meaning that the FYS class was linked with another course and the same students attended both classes. First year students benefited from this bond with students in the shared classes, and their instructors worked together on shared assignments and kept track of the students’ progress.
President Jordan and Rep. Ron Kind (Wisc.)

Congressman Kind has also served as captain of the Dunkin’ Donkeys for the biennial Congressional Basketball Classic which takes place at Gallaudet.
