Let Your Fingers do the Talking: 
Introduction to American Sign Language


For individuals that wants to learn a new language using their hands! I have taught American Sign Language at Northern Illinois University to students in classrooms and I have expanded this to the public in DeKalb. This course will allow you to learn basic American Sign Language using the book that is currently being used by NIU students that are taking ASL courses. Come and learn about a whole new world of culture and learn how to communicate using your hands!

The Great COD Scavenger Hunt


The Great COD Scavenger Hunt puts you in the driver seat of your own campus-wide adventure. Explore new spaces while falling in love all over again with those spaces you already know. Using clues and a campus map you can help solve the mystery behind the disappearance of "Dr. Horace Hatsfield" – a professor at College of DuPage. Once registered you will be emailed how to access the clues and campus map via Blackboard.
