MTV To Focus On Students With Disabilities
MTV is taking its cameras deep into the world of young adults who are deaf on a new reality series debuting on the network’s college channel.
The series, airing on mtvU, called “Quiet Campus” will follow four students attending Gallaudet University, a four-year college for those who are deaf or hard of hearing located in Washington, D.C.
“Entertainment has a powerful way of exposing viewers to new realities, breaking down stereotypes and misconceptions along the way,” said Paul Ricci, senior vice president of programming and head of development for mtvU. “‘Quiet Campus’ shines a spotlight on the hopes and dreams of these truly amazing young people as they experience the ups and downs of college life, and we believe that it will forever change the way our audience understands what it means to be deaf.”

“Quiet Campus” premieres Oct. 24 on mtvU at noon EST.
