Here’s what Vinu, UFV Student Union Society representative-at-large, had to say about the new club:

We set up UFV American Sign Language club in Abbotsford campus to encourage normal students to learn in a fun and joyous way. It is free of charge. I would love to teach ASL to all. ASL is the art of your hand dancing in sign beautifully. Class every Friday 4 p.m to 5.30 p.m is at A Building 225.
