Services for Students

The Speech Center offers assistance to those who wish to pursue effective speaking and articulate behavior across academic disciplines. Undergraduate and graduate students who come to the Speech Center (located on the fourth floor of Weinstein Hall) work with trained student speech consultants to develop and refine their skills in preparing individual and group presentations.

Practice sessions at the Speech Center are not restricted to class assignment purposes. There is no limit to the number of times a student may visit the Speech Center, so long as there is appointment time available.

If you are part of a group or organization and your role includes speaking to groups, you are welcome to practice your remarks at the Speech Center. You may wish to tape your presentation for future use. This may include the development of a career or multimedia portfolio, or the submission of your recorded speech as part of an internship application. Reserve time for an appointment several days in advance. The staff of the Speech Center look forward to assisting you.
