At FHSU, getting involved in student organizations is a key ingredient for your successful academic experience. Joining a club related to your major gives you the chance to explore the career field more fully, network with professionals, gain leadership experience and make a difference in the community around you.
NSSLHASLP students are encouraged to become members of the National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA). This group typically meets once a month, and it gives you a wonderful opportunity to meet other students in the major. The organization participates in a variety of service activities, such as sponsoring the Ellis County Spelling Bee. There are also opportunities to travel with the organization to state and national conventions related to Communication Disorders. For more information, contact Dr. Fred Britten, faculty advisor.
Conversation GroupSLP students have the opportunity of participating in the Conversation Group, a club open to all students from foreign countries who wish to practice their use of English. SLP students in the observation and participation course are actively involved in this project and serve as communication partners.
Beyond activities found in Albertson Hall, home to the Department of Communication Disorders, majors become part of many campus-wide organizations, such as Tigers in Service, intramurals or the Student Government Association.
