Saluki Spirit Announcments- Week Of Oct. 24th- 30th, 2017 

1) As always, if anybody has items that they would like to add to the weekly Saluki Spirit Announcements, please send them to Dr. Phil Anton at: panton@siu.edu

The Announcements are designed to reflect Saluki Spirit in all aspects of campus and the community, so send whatever you want from any corner of southern Illinois. Pictures are always a great addition.

2) #SalukiFriday is upon us again: Remember to wear your Saluki gear on Fridays! Also, send pics of your group(s) to Dr. Anton, as well as Randy Johnson at 710: randyj@seventen.com Photos will be featured in the Saluki Spirit Announcements and on 710's Facebook and Twitter platforms. In the photo below, the Social Work Student Association shows their #SalukiSpirit helping with donations for the Food Pantry on Homecoming Weekend.

3) This week on #SalukiFriday we visited the Clinical Center in Wham to visit the students involved in the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) to help out with their free hearing screening. Those pictures will be up soon on the "SIUC Department of Kinesiology" Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SIUC-Department-of-Kinesiology-201366063240550/), on our Twitter page: https://twitter.com/SalukiSpirit (swing by and give us a follow @SalukiSpirit), and our “salukispirit” Instagram page. The winner of the Facebook Poll on the Dept. of Kinesiology page for the pics taken with the Saluki Green Action Team at the SIU Sustainability Office in the Student Center last week is at the end of the Announcements.

4) Speaking of the NSSLHA, as a part of the group’s Audiology Awareness/Protect Your Hearing Month activities, they handed 190 noise reduction ear plugs and completed 40 hearing screenings. This gave the NSSLHA members invaluable hands-on experience conducting hearing screenings, as well as a chance to learn how to advocate for the NSSLHA, their program, and professions within the community. What a great show of #SalukiSpirit!

5) Saluki Men’s Golf emerged victorious at the Pinetree Intercollegiate in Kennesaw, GA this week, with Peyton Wilhoit (Marketing) shooting the lowest individual score of the whole tournament! Great individual and team victories and an outstanding end to their fall season. Congrats all!

On #SalukiFriday with the Saluki Green Action Team at the SIU Sustainability Office, like many lazy humans, we were about to nonchalantly toss our plastic bottle in the cardboard recycle bin, but Team Leader Austin Nunn is there to politely correct us…
