If you ask a Deafie to name colleges and universities that have a large population of Deaf students, you'll usually heard these 3 schools:

1. Gallaudet University
2. RIT/NTID (Rochester Institute of Technology/National Technical Institute for the Deaf)
3. CSUN (California State University, Northridge)

(Of course, there are several other schools with a noticeably large number of Deaf students in certain programs, such as Lamar University, Boston University, etc.)

Pretty soon, Deafies will be able to add a 4th school into their knowledge. Although, this school has been around for quite some time, it is not really well known among the Deafies, except Deaf Texans. However, enrollment has been increasing lately and have recently had a campus facelift. That school is:

4. SWCID (SouthWest Collegiate Institute of the Deaf) in Big Spring, Texas.

Here a couple of links to read up about SWCID.
