29. NTID/RIT shoutout!
I'm not deaf or HoH, but I went to RIT for my first two years of college for biochemistry (before switching to a totally non-technical major and transferring).

I took a couple ASL classes while I was there, but my friends said it was less frustrating for them to just read my lips than to try to understand my crazy, halted sign. :)
