Student Association of Speech and Hearing (SASH)

SASH, an organization led by undergraduates, exists to unite students who intend on entering the workforce as SLPs and AUDs.


SASH at Parkinson's Moving Day

The club strives to make Speech & Hearing Science majors active learners and to ignite a genuine passion for the specialized field. Our members participate in a variety of relevant activities throughout Western New York. We attend educational seminars, contribute to activities in nursing homes and hospitals, and volunteer at charity walks. SASH members attend on-campus meetings meant to enhance social and learning experiences, whether it be to prepare for the graduate school application process or to celebrate our field during Better Hearing & Speech Month. We hope to help eager students feel supported in the company of like-minded peers.

The SASH officers would love to hear from you. They can be contacted at their personal email accounts listed below. Questions, suggestions, and requests to join SASH are always welcome!
