On February 3rd, I went to the speaking center to get help on my first speech, but also to get a feel for what the speaking center had to offer. I had an appointment with a sophomore student named Monique, and she was very helpful. Monique gave me a bit of information about what services the Speaking center provides. Because when I saw Monique I had just received the assignment, the session was focused on finding possible topics for my speech. She was very helpful with the brainstorming process. Although it was a short meeting, I am glad that I know the services they provide, and that the speaking center is there as a tool if I have any questions, or simply just want to practice a speech.
