American Sign Language Club

The American Sign Language Club at Indiana University serves as an interactive place for students to engage in American Sign Language with all levels of signers. The club encourages anyone from an expert level signer to those who have never taken a sign language class to come explore a wonderfully diverse and fun visual language with other students who aim to improve their signing, make friends, and enjoy learning about Deaf culture. Contact Debbie Gessinger, ASL club advisor, for more information.
