Pre-CSD Club/ National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) Pacific University Chapter
The Pre-Communication Sciences and Disorders (Pre-CSD) Club was formed at Pacific University for students interested in the professions of Speech Language Pathology or Audiology. The goal is to provide members various opportunities that will either deepen their interests in the professions or provide them with experiences that will help them pursue a field of study they are passionate about.
The Pre-CSD Club is involved throughout the campus and in the community of Forest Grove. The Club tries to provide as many volunteering opportunities as possible, as well as activities that will help promote this club's purpose. Members are always encouraged to share new ideas of possible activities or services on campus and in the community.
Members of the Pre-CSD Club also have the option of joining the Pacific University Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA).
