    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a required course so you can only choose the professor.

    Course highlights:

    Martinelli does bring in food every once in a while and her stories are entertaining. I know more about the elements of speaking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you don't miss any days the speeches are on as you can make those up and have a business casual outfit. You do get points taken off for not dressing business casual on the days speeches are due.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public speaking is a necessary skill to develop and I felt that I made a lot of personal progress through this course. Heather made the environment as comfortable as possible while still placing the right amount of pressure on us.

    Course highlights:

    I learned different forms of presentations, such as Pecha Kucha, which is a presentation where there are 20 total slides and each slide lasts 20 seconds. Learning to deal with time constraints was extremely helpful for me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay calm and do your best. Your classmates are not judging you. They'll care more about what you have to say if you care about your subject, so don't pick something boring that isn't important to you.
