Students attending the 2014 ASHA Convention can network with advisors, officers and councilors at the Regional Round-up, a new feature of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association convention schedule of events.
On Saturday, Nov., 22, NSSLHA chapter members, advisors and officers—as well as those interested in starting a NSSLHA chapter—can meet with other chapters in their region, learn about resources available from the national office, and get answers to questions.
The Regional Round-up is just one of the many features of the NSSLHA Experience, a special menu of convention activities designed specifically for students.
Several education sessions (non-CEU) focus on student issues, such as Special Interest Group resources for students; how to choose, secure and navigate through a clinical fellowship or externship; a review of the federal student loan types, loan repayment options and loan forgiveness options.
Students interested in research doctoral programs, accredited master’s programs in speech-language pathology, and accredited audiology clinical doctoral programs can visit with representatives from academic programs to discuss enrollment opportunities at the Graduate School Fair and PhD Information Center.
NSSLHA will honor outstanding students, faculty, chapters and professionals who have made significant contributions to NSSLHA and communication sciences and disorders at the NSSLHA Honors Ceremony and Luncheon.
Teams from the 10 NSSLHA regions will battle it out—for cash prizes—at the NSSLHA Knowledge Bowl. Wear your region’s color, make signs, create cheers and support your team.
Students can polish their resumes for college applications, scholarships, internships or jobs at the Resume Star Program at the Career Fair. In 15-minute meetings, designated employers will review student resumes and give suggestions to help them stand out.
Students may register for the convention at a discounted rate of $200. Registration and hotel reservations open online Aug. 1. Follow the NSSLHA Experience at #NSSLHAEXP and visit the NSSLHA Experience website for session locations and times.
