Today we are highlighting NSSLHA at Southeast Missouri State University!
“In October, SEMO NSSLHA hosted indoor trick or treating in our speech and hearing clinic. We spread the word to have our community not only come out and have a fun time, but also have children with communication and sensory needs feel comfortable trick or treating around people that are aware of their needs. Throughout the month of November, our chapter hosted fundraising nights to raise money for our chapter and also the speech and hearing clinic. Lastly, our chapter is doing an undergraduate vs graduate penny war to raise money for gifts to give to children around Christmas time.”

Today we are highlighting NSSLHA at the University of Missouri!

“It may be cold, but that hasn’t stopped the University of Missouri's NSSLHA chapter from bonding over ice cream at Andy’s Frozen Custard. So far, Mizzou’s NSSLHA chapter has been very busy preparing for the ASHA Convention and pairing older and younger students in the program to build relationships and gain confidence in their success within the Speech, Language, and Hearing Science undergraduate program. This semester, Mizzou NSSLHA has provided opportunities to learn about scholarships within our program as well as volunteer opportunities. We also hosted a panel of graduate students to help ease the stress of graduate school applications. This month we will be having a profit share at Columbia’s most popular pizza place, Shakespeare’s Pizza!”

Today we are highlighting NSSLHA at the University of Central Missouri!

"The NSSLHA chapter at the University of Central Missouri has a lot of great things planned for this semester! During the first week of school, we hosted a Back-to-School Taco Tuesday and a "Welcome to the Center" event with members of Scottish Rite. We held our annual 5k on the 21st of September, and although we had a smaller turnout than normal due to a chance of bad weather, a good time was had by everyone who attended!

On the 5th of October we hosted our first Saturday Stories and Slices of the academic year. Students from our program read stories to and created crafts with children at the local library. Everybody who participated received pizza and took home a book! We are so excited to continue this awesome literacy outreach in our community for another year! Finally, we are looking forward to doing a canned food drive in November to help our on campus food pantry!"
