I really enjoyed going to this event. I have gone to this event in past semesters and enjoy the variety of different levels of signers. There was a guest that came in and he was very funny and entertaining. It was little bit overwhelming because there was so many people, usually there’s only a handful of people. I was able to sign for the last fifteen minutes, but the majority of the time was listening to the stories the guest presented.

The difference between ASL 1 and ASL 3 is astonishing. I enjoyed going to this Deaf event, even though there were a lot of people, I enjoyed the guest speaker although I did not catch his name he was very entertaining and funny. I enjoyed how the guest interacted with the students; I think that this was a very fun Deaf event. I plan on attending again
