Our Social Groups

Friday Social Group

The Hussman Center for Adults with Autism hosts Social Group activities on pre-scheduled Friday evenings in the Fall and Spring semesters. The groups are dynamic, interactive experiences for adults with autism and Towson University students. Participants gather to take part in activities that interest them in a supportive setting. This informal group meets at the Hussman Center. Transportation is not provided by the Hussman Center.  Parking is available at no cost for attendees. Everyone must register in advance of attending, complete either a Visitor form or Membership application, and pay the Friday Social Group attendance fee.  

Friday Social Group meets from 6:00-8:00pm and requires an RSVP.  

An email invitation is sent out to our distribution list 5-7 days before each Friday Social Group with a link to RSVP. If you would like to be on the distribution list to receive the Social Group email invitation, please send an email with your email address and your name to  

The cost for attendance per Friday Social Group is $7. 

There are two ways to come to social group – as a visitor or a member.

Limited memberships are offered before the start of each semester of Social Group. An email announcement with details about applying for membership, and what membership provides, will be made available to our social group distribution list in the weeks leading up to the first social group of each semester. If you are not already on this list and want to be, please  contact us or  email   and ask to be added.

In the case that you are not interested in being a member, or you were unable to join due to limited space, you can still attend social group as a visitor. This means that you would pay to come to social group each time you sign up, rather than pay a flat (one time) membership rate for the whole semester. Visitors must bring in a completed  visitor form (PDF) the first time they are visiting social group and agree to follow the Hussman Center Behavior Standards (PDF). Once visitors have submitted this form it will kept on file for one year and will not need to be completed again for another year, unless we need to update any changes in information as they occur. The visitor form will also be included in social group announcements.  

Whether a member or a visitor, you need to be on our social group distribution list to receive social group announcements, which includes how to sign-up per individual social group. Again, if you aren’t on our social group distribution list and would like to be added, please contact us or email .
