Heading to town

 

On Nov. 20, Wright State University-Lake Campus hosted its fifth annual Deaf Town, an event for American Sign Language students to be a hearing person in a Deaf world.

Students interacted with residents from the Deaf community at five different interactive stations, including a grocery store, clothing store, travel agent and doctor’s office.

“I think it was a really cool opportunity to experience what people go through when they’re Deaf,” said Courtney Grothouse, a junior communications studies major.

Dozens of students and several members of the Deaf community participated in Deaf Town, which took place in James F. Dicke Hall.
