The event had a ‘stuff and fluff’ station for people to make there own stuffed animals, and a food truck with strictly vegan food varying from veggie burgers, falafel wraps, portabella warps, and three different smoothies.

In order to get a ticket to the food truck, attendees had to sign a petition to stop animal cruelty.

There was also a table with much information of making a difference with becoming vegan.

For those who don’t know, an individual who follows a vegan diet produces 50 percent less CO2, uses 1/11th oil, 1/13th water, and 1/18th land compared to a meat eater.

Catchin’ Waves with Monmouth’s Surf Club

Catchin Waves MU SurfThe Monmouth Surf Club has been busy this year surfing along the east coast. Members on the team have dedicated their time traveling to find better waves and paying respect to the local communities.

The Club’s first event was held on Hathaway in Deal, NJ for a beach clean up where Waves for Water made an appearance. This non-profit organization gives countries reusable clean water filtration systems that provide clean drinking water. Waves for Water recently visited Haiti after Hurricane Mathew destroyed their country.

Senior communication student Hunter Rainis, junior business student Paul Kelly, and sophomore business student Matt Kelly made the first stop on the east coast. “Driving through the Verrazano Bridge was crazy. I thought I was going to get bumped off the bridge, and traffic was nuts,” P. Kelly said.

The crew ended up in Long Beach, NY and surfed all day thanks to Hurricane Nicole. “The first spot we checked was so crowded, but it was the best I have seen it in a while so we had to go in,” Rainis said. “We surfed later at a secret spot and traded waves all alone.”

Trunk - or - Treat is Really Sweet

Trunk Or TreatAutumn is here in full swing. The leaves are turning, the temperature is dropping and more importantly everyone’s favorite time of the year is right around the corner. Each year at the end of October hundreds of thousands of children go out dressed as their favorite superhero or princess to collect candy.

However, the biggest concern for parents and loved ones if how difficult it can be for children to do so in a safe manner. The solution…Monmouth University’s Trunk or Treat!

The event was introduced to the campus and surrounding community by the First Year Service Project last fall as a way for Monmouth University to provide a safe place for children to trick or treat

Former Student Coordinator and alumni, Deanna Getty said “It gives me so much joy to see the students of Monmouth working together to do something wonderful for the community. Seeing the joy on children’s faces last year was priceless and I can’t wait to see how successful the trunk or treat is year!” Most children are unable to go out late on the night of Halloween to collect candy because they have school early the next day, or their parents work, or the family doesn’t feel safe with their children out too late.

Getting Involved with the NSSLHA

Involved NSSLHAThe National Student Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) provides both undergraduate and graduate students interested in Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology with a support system that encourages the pursuit of these professions.

Monmouth University launched its Speech-Language Pathology master’s program in 2014, and since then there has been an increased spark of interest in the field of study amongst undergraduates.

The program’s rigorous curriculum, implementation of clinical experience, research opportunities, and experienced faculty has deemed it to be under “pre-accreditation” status by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

This status signifies that the program has met the standards issued by ASHA. Although the SLP master’s program is becoming nationally recognized, many undergraduate students are uncertain of where to inquire information about this particular field of study.
