Check out all the neat things UWSP NSSLHA has been up to this semester! As always we maintain a strong presence in the Stevens Point community and strive to set up our undergraduate members for future success.

 

Volunteering:

  • Healthy family night - Stevens Point families come to the Central WI Children's Museum for a family-style meal, and play and explore with volunteers in the museum
  • Be the change – Volunteers give back to the community and its local organizations like the YMCA, Family Crisis Center, Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners, Brookedale Senior Living, UWSP Cupboard, and Midwest Renewable Energy Association.
  •  Exceptional Child's Night - Volunteers provide childcare and interact with children with hearing loss at the Central WI Children's Museum
  • Feed my starving children - NSSLHA volunteers teamed up with other volunteers to hand-pack meals that are sent around the world to feed children in third-world countries.
  • We also have a group of volunteers that read at the childcare center on campus and plan short lessons to go with the story read.

 

Socials:

  • Belts run - a group of members met up at a local ice cream joint for ice cream and socializing.
  •  WSHA - About thirty members of the UWSP NSSLHA chapter attended this year's WSHA convention to learn more about the fields of study within the careers of audiology and speech pathology. We also attended the first annual NSSLHA caucus that was held as one of the sessions at WSHA. The caucus proved to be a great opportunity to connect with other Wisconsin NSSLHA chapters to share and collaborate on chapter successes.
  • CSD Social Night - Twenty of our NSSLHA members got to meet with members of the UWSP CSD faculty. This event allowed students to learn more about the faculty and their journeys to becoming the professionals they are today.

Fundraising:

  • Stickers and buttons - We continue to sell customized stickers and buttons at each meeting.
  • Graduation cords - New to our chapter this year, we are selling NSSLHA graduation cords (big success).
  • UWSP CSD apparel - As is  Another fund raiser we had for the semester was the CSD social night.

 

The last event of the year will be a short monthly meeting in May that is also an end of the year get-together planned by the new officers. The current officers eagerly await to see the success the new officers next school year!
