This student-run club is an active part of the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department, and is in affiliation with the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSHLA). This club meets monthly  and reports back to the Student Government Association on campus. This club has participated in many campus-wide activities including Kidstuff, the Build a Scarecrow contest, Easter Egg Hunts, Department Fall Harvest, Holiday and Spring Parties, Stroke Awareness Month, health screenings and many more. Many of the events that we participate in, or sponsor, are charitable, therefore, donations to the organizations upon completion of the events are given when possible. At this time the club is advised by Ms. Andrea Novak. If you are interested in becoming a member of the club please contact the advisor at novak@marywood.edu, or the club officers.
