Renaming of Metro Station
Students, faculty, and staff of Gallaudet University gathered for the opening of the new Metro station near the school in Washington, DC. The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Metro station on the red line officially introduced the new station new: NoMa-Gallaudet U Metro. NoMa stands for North of Massachusetts Avenue. The stop opened in eight years ago and was previously named New York Ave-Florida Ave-Gallaudet U. When they found out Gallaudet might be dropped from the new name, students at the school started a petition, collecting more than 1000 signatures. The stop serves more than 7400 riders each weekday.
