Smiles on the Brave at Survivorfest 09
says, "On Wednesday, October 21, in the Student Center Quad, under
a perfect sky, a group of 15 students from all majors gathered to present
the third annual Public Speaking Fall Festival. This year
the festival got a new name, 'Survivorfest 09!' a blend of heartfelt speeches,
music, comedy, free snacks, prizes and a few fake speech-anxiety attacks.
Amid fluttering streamers and electric guitar, one by one, 15 students
who had successfully completed CMN112. Mercer's highly transferrable Public
Speaking Course, and hungry to show off their new skills, crafted humorous
and very touching messages for the crowd."
