BONUS BUCKS! We’re implementing a little friendly competition among the student organizations! The Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA), Student Physical Therapy Association (SPTA) or National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) chapter with the highest percentage of survey participants University-wide by July 17 will receive $500 to use however that organization chooses (donate the funds to the charity of your choice, have a social event with your favorite food or use the money for a special project your organization has wanted to do). It’s your choice! Plus, the student organization with the second-highest percentage of survey responses on each of the remaining four campuses will receive $150. 

Dallas SPTA is currently in the lead, with Dallas NSSLHA in second place. St. Augustine SOTA and Austin NSSLHA are in close pursuit. San Marcos and Miami—do you accept the challenge?
