Spring Semester 2017 (The schedule for spring semester will be posted soon)

Speech Center Location and Mission:

The Speech Center is located on the fifth floor of the McFarland Library in BA 511, near the Writing Center. Speech Center consultants will provide free tutoring for all students for any course that requires public speaking or group presentations. The student does not need to be enrolled in a public speaking course. Tutors can help students with outlining and research strategies, computer slide presentations, brainstorming of topics, and delivery techniques.

The Speech Center is equipped with a camera and recording equipment along with all “smart facilities” needed. All students will be able to practice their speeches or group presentations, using any visual aids they may have, record the practice speeches and presentations to then playback for critiquing of what they do well and what aspects of the presentation they need to improve or strengthen.

Mondays: 8:00am – 11:00am & 5:00 – 7:00pm
