SPEECH LAB - fall 2014

The Speech Lab is a resource for COM 180 students and is set up to assist them with the speech
writing/presentation process. Students who go to the Speech Lab are able to obtain feedback about their
speech and make improvements before presenting in class for a grade.
During their appointment, COM 180 students will meet with a student worker; alumni of the COM 180 course (who
earned an A in the course) or grad students who have been trained in giving speech feedback and who are
familiar with the COM 180 course expectations.
The Speech Lab is located in the Payson Library in the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) located on the
second floor. If you walk through the front entrance of ACE, its the very last room on the right. Look for signs!
