Looking for something to get involved with on campus? Want to learn more about clubs? I sat down with Jamie DiSalvo, president of the American Sign Language Club to talk about what they do and how they brought a new club to campus!
What is the purpose of your club?
The purpose of the organization is to allow students to be exposed to deaf culture and experience it in a way that allows not only something fun and interesting but provides positive learning opportunities for students with or without an ASL background.
We are also part of the Diversity Council. They work together to educate the college community through programming, serve as a resource for clubs, and promote an environment that embraces other cultures. Diversity Council is comprised of clubs on campus that work to educate the college community and promote inclusion and the celebration of cultural differences.
What are some of the activities ASL club has done on campus?
We were able to bring in the author of Deaf Heart, Willy Conley, to talk about his book and inform the community about the Deaf culture.
We also hosted a “Paint and Sign” where members come and learn some basic signs and paint trying to use only sign language to communicate. It was really fun.
