Student Group Signer Manual

The ASL Collective is a student group devoted to bringing awareness of deaf culture and American Sign Language to Hampshire and the Five Colleges. Join us and Hampshire ASL professor Ruth Moore for ASL lunch every WEDNESDAY 12-1pm (or whenever we feel like leaving ...) in the Dining Commons! (If you're not on the meal plan, no problem!)  Any and all levels of experience and knowledge welcome.  Look for the snazzy poster on the table and have a seat!

There will movie screenings, socials, and (we're hoping!) special guests throughout the semester!

More information about ASL Socials and events in the community is also available by way of the wmass-asl Google Group OR, more current, the Amherst & Northampton Socials Facebook Group!

To join the Hampshire ASL Listserve, follow this link: https://lists.hampshire.edu/mailman/listinfo/asl

The listserve will keep you up to date on lunches, socials, and awesome events!
