Events

Our National Student Speech Language Hearing Association Chapter (NSSLHA) is very active on campus and in the Oxford community. Please read about their events over the past year!

NSSHLA on the Run 5k

group of students

NSSLHA hosts a 5k benefiting the Miami University Speech and Hearing Clinic. The organization raises money to provide therapy for clients in the clinic. Each Spring the 5k has different color teams, supporting different aspects of the field:  Autism, language disorders, and hearing loss.


Bachelor Hall Courtyard Clean-Up

This event takes place in the courtyard of Bachelor Hall, where the Speech-Pathology and Audiology Department is located. The members of NSSLHA work together with the Miami groundskeepers to make the outside courtyard more welcoming and neat. The members help with raking leaves, mulching, and planting flowers.


Service Events

PAUSE event

NSSLHA members attend and help with a dance every month at Safe Haven Farms, which hosts dances for adults with disabilities.  Members aid in serving a meal to the adults and their families, as well as have fun dancing with participants!
NSSLHA also helped sponsor a blood drive this semester, where members volunteered to donate blood and to work the donor cafe!

Fundraisers

NSSLHA hosts many fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for the 5k and other chapter expenses. Fundraisers in the past include meals at Fiesta Charra, Skippers, SDS, Orange Leaf, and Insomnia Cookies. The members have also hosted bake sales at the Phi Delt Gates.


Social Events

There are many opportunities for members to engage with one another through social opportunites that promote inter-chapter relationships.  Members have gone to concerts on campus together, played games at Cook Field, and painted pumpkins together for the clinic! 


Educational Programming

Every month members gather for a chapter meeting that focuses on educational programming, whether it is listening to a profession who is currently working in the field or from a professor on tips for graduate school or about their careers!
