The best way to feel that you belong to the Linguistics Department is to join the student Macquarie University Speech, Hearing and Linguistics Society. MUSHLS wants you as one if its members! Both undergraduate and postgraduate members are welcome.
The society has just been formed, and has already been awarded as ‘Best New Society’ by Campus Life. As Cordelia, the President, puts it “We're a society with a focus not only on the communication sciences, but also on building awesome friendships, hosting great events and turning your university degree into a more active and exciting experience”.
Here’s a photo of the Executive members from left to right: Rowan Cox, Dale Coyle, Kelly Miles, Samantha Bentink, Cherry Dolalas, Cordelia Van Aalst, and Davina Creek.
