    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Communications 101 was able to greatly supply me with public speaking skills- something that most people fear to their core. Professor French was able to cultivate a creative, encouraging, and very vibrant experience for my peers and I through lessons plans that made us eager to actually learn more. Although speaking in front of people you don't know can be very intimidating, French gave us the tools to learn from our mistakes through group readings and confidence exercises which can really be used in any other form of everyday communication.

    Course highlights:

    Although I was very nervous to take this course at first, I came to the realization that there were more positives to my hard work than negatives. There was never any kind of busy work and every single assignment had a bigger purpose. One of my favorite parts of this class was being challenged to come up with speeches in such a small time frame. French had us throw away the idea of constantly writing things down word for word, and wanted us actually understand and feel passionate towards the content we were supposed to be focused on. This helped me draw persecutive into some of my other classes, helping me get group projects done in other classes in a timely manner. Not only did I learn about the core aspects of constructing a speech, but I learned how your physicality plays a big part in creating your image and how you want your audience to not only view, but see your words.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although I had a number of classmates who would not study for this class, I found that taking notes from the given text book was extremely helpful when going over them the next day during lessons in class. Making sure to not procrastinate on research was also very important because being able to actually practice your speech for more than a day was key to having a successful reading in the classroom.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Taking a night class never seemed like a good idea. Until I took it with T.Smith. She honestly puts in so much hard work and dedication to what she is teaching her students and makes it interesting! I would have never stayed awake in this class if the professor wasn't Smith. Throwing life stories made the class interesting as well!

    Course highlights:

    in this class you learn the basics of communication. You learn how to present a speech in front of a group, how to walk and talk and successfully communicate your problems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    going into this course I didn't do the work as prompted. And I got called out for it. When I'm a communications class and having to give a speech in order to pass the class. Make sure you've done your work and successfully prepared. Half doing it won't slide for this professor
