The BGSU NSSLHA chapter is involved in many community service events throughout the year, including painting pumpkins for our clinic to use as decorations, serving Holiday dinners and having karaoke night at our local senior center. Other community service events include playing bingo at local nursing homes, assisting with Woodlane’s Halloween Dance, volunteering at a local soup kitchen and many more.
Every year our chapter hosts a variety of social events in order to encourage our members to meet others interested in the same career as them. Past social events include; ice cream socials, movie night, making holiday decorations for our annual holiday potluck, creating teams to be involved in intramural sports, and the Annual Spring Banquet at the end of the semester.
The BG NSSLHA chapter holds various fundraisers throughout the year and all proceeds are donated to help non-profit organizations in the area of communication sciences and disorders. In the past we have hosted fundraisers to raiser money for:
• The Ronald McDonald House Charities
• Ohio Veteran's Home
• BGSU Dance Marathon
• BGSU Clinic needs
• And many more…
If you have any ideas/suggestions or for more information concerning any future NSSLHA events feel free to contact the officers.
