The event was part of my Dark Tourism course. Many of the local Death Cafe events are not language-accessible for ASL users so I hosted the event.
My students made cookies and I brought a cake. Everyone stayed beyond the time and while it took a bit for them to get the discussion started, once it started they did not want to stop.
I always enjoy freshmen/ upper class student-interactions. Two of my freshmen from an earlier class were trying to sneak in when I told them they were invited. They stayed until the end.
