A few deaf athletes that have played on NCAA-I athletic
programs have enrolled at Gallaudet to attend
classes and graduate with degrees. Because their
NCAA eligibility have expired, they were not able
to play sports at Gallaudet.

One such athlete sort of felt guilty about not
playing at Gallaudet.

For another athlete, he enrolled in a Gallaudet
graduate program, but didn’t like it and
withdrew in order to take a different
undergraduate major. He has graduated and
has moved on.

They both wanted the challenge of playing NCAA-I
sports but did not particularly enjoy the campus
social life.
