Eighth Graders Learn from Communication Studies Majors

CommStudies-3cs.jpgThe Communication Studies Department hosted 116 eighth-graders from Southside Elementary School in Wilson County for the “Three Cs: Communication College Connection” conference. Lambda Pi Eta members Meg Tully, Kate Harris and Eric Schoen led a large group workshop on speech organization and audience analysis. Students from Mary Vaughn’s COM 1100 classes conducted break-out workshops on speech delivery and led walking tours of campus. Southside teacher Janie Johnson commented, “Belmont has a nationally winning Speech & Debate Team, so we knew this would be the best place to come for instruction in public speaking. I can teach these TCAP competencies all year, but when a cool college student does it, it sticks!”
