"I chose to make a bequest to the Osborne College of Audiology because I truly believe that Salus University is an outstanding educational model for the health sciences. The audiology program offers excellent clinical opportunities to prepare students for an audiological career to better care for those who are in need."
-Celeste F. Bove, AuD '03

"Legacy giving is an excellent way to support the practice of audiology, its students and OCA well beyond our years. Even a small percent of one's estate value can result in immeasurable results for students, OCA and our profession."
-Kathy A. Foltner, AuD '02
