University of Nebraska Acoustical Society of America (UNASA)Welcome to the UNASA Student Chapter website! We were the first ASA student chapter established, thanks to Dr. Erica Bowden Ryherd's efforts. Our student chapter brings the exciting world of acoustics into the University of Nebraska community. Chapter meetings focus on topics from many areas of acoustics, usually incorporating demonstrations, interactive activities, and presentations of scholarly work. Of course, there will always be plenty of food and fun!
