This year, the LLC has accomplished a lot. We did two service learning projects, both at Water Tower View, we had several events that encouraged the new skills gained in class, and we are currently preparing for our annual end of the year event for University Housing.
One of my favorite moments from this year, was at our second trip to Water Tower View (WTV). We assisted residents with spring crafts and were there to communicate with the residents of WTV who don't have the opportunity to do so otherwise. One resident from WTV shared many stories he had from his world travels. The students really enjoyed it, and this allowed residents to engage with people out in the Deaf community to use the language they are learning in classes.
As we conclude the semester, the residents of the ASL-LLC are working hard to share what they have learned this year. You can attend out event on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 6 pm in the Green Room of Sandburg. Students will be teaching basic signs and engaging other students in activities to promote and educate University Housing residents on Deaf Culture. Hope to see you there.
