Organizations and Events

American Sign Language Club

Northwest American Sign Club is open to any student who has an interest in American Sign Language. The ASL club's purpose is to promote the awareness of ASL and the Deaf Culture. We discuss issues within the Deaf Culture and community and discuss how it relates to our everyday lives. It is a place to come and learn new sign language as well as enhance skills students may already have. The group meets 1-2 times a month and will plan activities such as visiting the Missouri School for the Deaf or attending The Missouri Commission for the Hard of Hearing and Deaf Conference in the fall of each year.
