Networking Reception with Current Students

If you are able to come to town early, we’d like to invite you to participate in an early afternoon networking reception with current students to share your experiences as a former Speech Consultant and ways your knowledge of the importance of excellence in public expression may have influenced, even enhanced, your career options and aspirations. No preparation is necessary. If you would like to be a part of this Friday event or simply receive more information, please contact Liz Ross (; 804-289-8142) in the Office of Alumni & Career Services.
