On May 24, students from Comm 120 Oral Communication competed in persuasive and informative speeches, at the Santos Manuel Student Union, during the CAST public speaking competition held by the Forensics club and sponsored by Rand McNally and the Dept. of Communication Studies. The winners, who informed audiences about the sun and persuaded audiences to learn an instrument, received generous gift backpacks with many useful and fun items for students. Pictured standing with their Comm. 120 instructors, who also are Graduate Teaching Associates themselves, this event showcases the talents and strengths of Communication Studies students and educators.
