New York City area's deaf and hard-of-hearing residents and their families are invited to attend a free, college information reception sponsored by the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology. The event will beheld from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Jan. 7, at The Dreyfus Corporation, 200 Park Avenue, New York, NY.

The evening will include a brief presentation, question and answer time with NTID/RIT alumni, and free refreshments.

"We're pleased to share how we've helped thousands of deaf and hard-of-hearing students graduate with associate, bachelor and master's degrees," said Robert Borden, NTID's director of enrollment management.

This year, RIT/ NTID provided 65,000 hours of notetaking and tutoring services, as well as 93,000 hours interpreting for students enrolled in classes and involved in sports activities throughout RIT.

NTID was established at RIT to enhance career opportunities for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. Over the past 33 years, thousands of highly qualified deaf graduates have entered professions that previously had not been open to them. More than 1,100 deaf students from around the world study, live and socialize with 14,000 hearing students on RIT's Rochester, NY campus. Web address:
