Bison women's volleyball gives back to Rochester Deaf Community

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Earlier this month, the Gallaudet University women's volleyball team took time out of its busy schedule to give back to the community.

The volleyball team visited the Rochester School for the Deaf on Nov. 10 prior to their matchup with The College of Brockport in the Division III national championship tournament. The Bison engaged with middle and high school students as they discussed volleyball, college, and life at Gallaudet University.

"The short visit had a personal touch for me. Providing exposure to young students at a small deaf school is the best way for them to realize the great opportunity and potential that lay ahead of them after high school. It's always good to give back to a community that has showed tremendous support to its students," said Gallaudet Assistant Coach Cory Behm, former student at Rochester School for the Deaf.

Before wrapping up, GU gave away mini volleyballs to everyone in attendance and donated equipment to the RSD volleyball team.

Members of the Rochester Deaf Community came out to Gallaudet's match against Brockport on Friday, Nov. 11, to cheer on the Bison.
