Students Speak at Fall
students practiced their newly-perfected speaking skills publicly during
the "Fall Swirl Festival" on Oct. 9. Faculty member Kathi Paluscio
developed the new public speaking forum for students, who succeeded beyond
her expections, drawing laughter, applause and a few tears from an appreciative
crowd outside the Student Center. No doubt, they also persuaded a few
students that public speaking is actually fun. Click here
