Well, students, it’s summertime. Although it’s probably not the carefree empty-calendar summer you might have had as a child, summer is still an exciting time of transition… another academic year down, a new year ahead. Congratulations on being one step closer to your career!
If you’re looking for ways to stay connected to audiology over the summer semester, no need to look farther! The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) and the American Academy of Audiology provide plenty of connections. For events or activities, check out the Academy event calendar. If you’re jones-ing for some academia, try perusing the Journal of the American Academy of Audiology. Or, for those of you who are considering your career options, why not learn from someone who has been in your shoes? Hop over to the SAA Blog where you’ll find the “A Day in the Life” and “Becoming a ___ Audiologist” series.
This summer we also welcome new leadership to the SAA, as the new Board of Directors began their terms July 1! I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the year ahead. If you would like to work with them, apply to join the SAA volunteer reserve today!
Don’t forget to have a little fun outside of audiology this summer too – I plan to find a good pool or lake at least a couple times while the weather’s right. However, you “summer” best, enjoy the season!

Fortunately, national SAA has got your back. Each year, the SAA and the Academy Foundation offer many scholarship opportunities to SAA members….

Perfecting the PRAXIS® If you are actively making plans to take the audiology PRAXIS® then first of all – kudos to you for taking the time to look for information and prepare. Between the SAA webpage and PRAXIS® webpage, the internet is practically oozing with preparation materials. For example, did you know that the Educational…
