Sami Vrana- Deaf Tour

My name is Sami Vrana and I am a Junior here at SFA and a Communication Sciences and Disorders major and a Deaf Education minor. This semester, I am starting the process of training to become a licensed level 1 American Sign Language interpreter through disability services! This is so exciting to know that it is only a matter of time before I will be a licensed interpreter. Aside from that I am also a jack walker! 

This week, I had the privilege of giving 2 potential students the lumberjack experience in American Sign Language! These two students were Deaf and showed great interest in SFA! Both commented multiple times on our absolutely beautiful campus and all of our amenities. We were also complemented on our campus accessibility for Deaf students and how our campus reminded her a lot of Gallaudet University, a widely known university for the Deaf. This is just another example of how everyone can enjoy the lumberjack experience and how SFA is fully accessible to both Deaf and hearing. 

Thanks and AXE EM!
