Two current students welcome the members of the Class of 2013 to campus during orientation week. Dozens of faculty, staff, and current students volunteered their help the week of August 24, assisting with everything from setting up network passwords to moving new students' belongings into residence halls.

The summit was a first-ever opportunity to learn about internship and career opportunities at the CIA for deaf and hard of hearing students. Deaf and hard of hearing CIA employees—including Gallaudet alumni—gave overviews of their jobs. CIA recruiters are looking for qualified interns with strong writing skills in a wide variety of disciplines—even theatre arts. Agency representatives are scheduled to hold an information session for students on October 6, noon-2 p.m., in the JSAC G-Area. Students interested in a paid co-ops or a full-time job should visit www.CIA.gov. (Co-op applications for next year are due by November 1.)
