Yes Ithaca is in Central NY ... I've been to Corning on occasion and know
many people there. There are not many deaf students at Ithaca College and
we only have a few classes in ASL.
I just would like to get an idea about how people feel about ASL and its
effectiveness in society. Basically people's opinions about it and if it
should become a major or minor in colleges and universities.
