    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I was so afraid of speaking in front of people until I took this class. Jill really helps you get out of your comfort zone, and truly makes you a better speaker. I felt more confident after taking the class!

    Course highlights:

    Everyone in my class was very supportive of each other. Jill created a safe, fun environment. I learned how to shake off my nerves, speak louder, and stop shaking! Practice makes perfect.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate. If you do, you will fall behind very quickly. Everyone is rooting for you, so do not feel embarrassed or shy!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved Professor McCall! She was an amazing teacher who was very helpful and easy to talk to. She made speech class fun.

    Course highlights:

    I gained confidence in myself and my public speaking abilities. I also learned that it is okay to make mistakes, but it is important how you recover from those mistakes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow the structure your professor gives you! Most speech teachers give outlines on how they like their speeches written. Follow that and you will succeed.
