"Since I was a young girl, I have always wanted to be a Deaf Interpreter. While searching for colleges with a Deaf Interpreting Program, it was clear it was going to be a hard task to follow.
There are not many schools that offer a top of the line program for a field that is now starting to bloom. I stumbled upon Mount Aloysius College and was extremely excited I could have found the college that was just right for me. I planned a visit which included a tour of the campus led by two students who were in the Interpreting Program and by the end of the tour; I knew Mount Aloysius College was the perfect choice for me.
The program is excellent. The classes are enjoyable and a day never passes where I don't learn something new. The professors in the program are always willing to lend a helping hand but most importantly; they have a way of making learning fun. I have Mount Aloysius College to thank for allowing me to fall in love with Deaf Interpreting all over again."
