Members of the campus community get ready to enjoy a webcast dance performance from Sweden called Vibragera, broadcast live on March 12 in Andrew Foster Auditorium. About 1,500 audience members in Sweden watched the dance and felt the vibrations, while a smaller but still enthusiastic group at Gallaudet shared the experience. The Gallaudet group was visible to the Swedish audience throughout the performance. The event was a co-production of the world famous Tyst Teater (“Silent Theatre”) of Sweden, Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology, and Gallaudet.

The fair offered an ideal opportunity for Gallaudet students and alumni to find myriad employment opportunities in one central place. According to Anjali Desai-Margolin, acting director of the Career Center, the event was a big success, attracting 46 employers offering internships and full- or part-time employment opportunities to the 300-plus students who attended the fair. She said that there was a good mix of federal agencies and private companies represented, including: AAAS Entry Point!, Booz-Allen Hamilton, Inc., Transportation Security Administration/Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bender Consulting Services, Inc., Howard County Public Schools, MCC-Warwick Family Services, NASA, Sorenson Communications, and the U.S. Agency for International Development, to name a few.
Alumna and former Board of Trustees member Susan Elliott (center) shows off a Gallaudet blanket she received at a reception to celebrate her recent accomplishments. With her on the Peikoff Alumni House stage are Dr. Carol LaSasso, who taught Elliott as a graduate student, and President Davila. Elliott was selected as Colorado’s 2009 Teacher of the Year, and was later named one of four finalists for National Teacher of the Year. The March 11 reception was held during Elliott’s visit to Washington, D.C. to interview for the prestigious position. “We want to give our sincere congratulations to you,” Dr. Davila said at the reception, which was co-sponsored by the Office of the President and the Graduate School, and he wished her luck. He added that, whatever the outcome of her interview, given her accomplishments to date, “You’re already a winner.” Watch a video of the reception
