Purdue University North Central American Sign Language Club will host a Silent Dinner on Thursday, Oct. 2 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Culver's Restaurant, 3966 Frontage Road, Michigan City. The event is open to ASL students as well as all community members. Culver’s will donate a portion of the proceeds to the PNC ASL Club.
The evening will feature a Meet and Greet using conversational ASL. Silent Dinner participants are asked to use ASL only for conversation and to place orders – a student may translate orders into English for the server or participants may point to the menu or write out an order.
This is an ideal opportunity to use ASL for conversation. Participants can be ASL beginners or fluent, or individuals interested in knowing more about ASL.
