Silent Weekend

Sixteen ASL students from SIU recently participated in "Silent Weekend," hosted by St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley. Participants were required to communicate only in ASL, no voice, from 6:00 pm on Friday through 12:00 noon on Sunday!

Pictured with our students below is Peter Cook, world renown Deaf storyteller, comedian and performer, who was guest performer for the weekend.
