    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Cavin is an incredible professor that makes a sometimes unconformable task to do in Public Speaking, and makes it doable by being relatable, humorous, well-informed, and very encouraging. You are put into speaking situations geared to help you grow and learn. Great into course and I would highly recommend taking this course!

    Course highlights:

    Quite simply, I learned the basics of public speaking. I always had an idea of how to talk in front of people, but this class but meaning to it all and made it something structured. You learn about why you get nervous, how to address it, and how to get through it and excel. You learn a lot about yourself and gain confidence as a speaker. I got very close with my small class due to the personalized speeches and connections.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    First and foremost, for your speeches be sure to prepare ahead of time! Scrambling at the last minute after procrastinating is never smart, I was reminded of this the hard way. You want to rehearse your speeches in front of friends and people you trust. Be prepared to feel nervous but thats okay, everyone does and it will go away as you speak. Take notes, talk in class, ask questions and you will do great.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Ritchie is obviously experienced in her field. She teachers higher level communication classes as well as COMM 1101. She isn't a super tough grader as long as you look at the outline for the speeches and follow what that says. She seems like she can be biased at times, but for the most part as long as you keep your phone out of view and follow the directions on assignments, it should be an easy, yet boring, course.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned how to structure a speech a lot more formally. I never knew that there was a method to the madness, because in high school I pretty much would just wing my speech, but Professor Ritchie taught me that there are certain components needed to fit different types of speeches, which will be extremely useful in the future for my career.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like I've said before, just follow the directions, keep your phone away, and don't forget to hand her your outline BEFORE the speech! A couple of students tried to give her their outline after their speech and she wouldn't accept it. Just make sure you listen!
