MTVu – MTV’s 24-hour college network — will debut its short-order docu-series about Gallaudet University, the country’s leading institution for deaf and hard of hearing students, on Oct. 24.

“Quiet Campus” follows four students attending the school, located in Washington:

* Michel is a senior and a star on the football team, who is determined to win the upcoming homecoming game.

* Cesar is a popular, charismatic, gay Latino, an aspiring photographer; he eagerly awaits homecoming to find out if he’ll be crowned this year’s homecoming King.

* Clayton, a sophomore, has been spending more and more time with Taylor, a girl he met in class, and is trying to find his way out of the “friend zone.”

* Taylor, a sophomore who lost her hearing at a young age due to chemo therapy treatments, treasures her friendship with Clayton, but might not be ready to take their relationship to the next level.

The series culminates at homecoming.

“[W]e believe that it will forever change the way our audience understands what it means to be deaf,” MTVu’s programming chief Paul Ricci said in Monday’s scheduling announcement.
