American Sign Language Club at Florida State University

Welcome to FSU’s ASL Club!

The purpose of the ASL Club at Florida State University is for students to facilitate awareness of ASL while developing their own skills and knowledge. The main focus is to encourage students to practice sign language in an active group setting. Members of the ASL Club will participate in ASL based events and gatherings. As a club, we will gradually learn more about Deaf culture through interpersonal interactions while acquiring ASL skills. The club is open to all FSU students who are interested in learning and getting involved with the language and culture.

The American Sign Language Club is a separate organization from academic-based ASL programs including Signing Seminoles, the ASL Honor Society, and the DHH/ASL Educational Outreach program, although the ASL club does collaborate closely with the Signing Seminoles program, offering opportunities to engage in voice-off activities, thus promoting immersive acquisition of ASL.

Meetings for the ASL Club are every month on the third Thursday of each month at 5pm at various locations. At meetings, we update members on various happenings and events of the club as well as take time to teach some signs. We have members of varying ASL background, so we are sure to incorporate both introductory level signs as well as more advanced signs to accommodate all levels. In addition to our monthly meetings, the ASL Club hosts various events throughout each semester to allow students to come into contact with the language in various contexts. Many of these events are themed to the season around the time at which it is hosted and we teach holiday and seasonal signs. The ASL Club hosts events individually, which are voice-on (you get to use your voice), as well as collaborates with Signing Seminoles, to host events that are voice-off (where only visual communication is allowed), to, again, allow students a variety of ways they can get involved in the language.
