Seawolves Football Welcomes Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf

There was no need for calling audibles when Seawolves football welcomed Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf students to the campus on August 10.

Nine football players enrolled in the University’s American Sign Language (ASL) class communicated Mill Neck students, answering their questions about what it’s like to be a Division I athlete. Later, Mill Neck students took a tour of the University led by other ASL students and met with an admissions counsellor.
