American Sign Language
Who? Students who are an ASL native signer, plan to be an ASLIE major/minor, or have a fluency with American Sign Language.
What? The American Sign Language Living Learning Community provides students with a unique experience to engage themselves in ASL and deaf culture. Students who participate in the LLC agree to only use ASL in common spaces on the floor and participate in various programs across the EKU campus and Richmond community. As part of a partnership with the ASLIE Department, students will have the opportunity to not only connect with peers, but also faculty and staff committed to their student success.
Where? The American Sign Language LLC is located in Walters Hall.
