The Speech Communication Club is a way for students to meet and build friendships amongst other students in the major, and those who are interested in the major. The activities planned and implemented by the club will be a chance to practice rhetorical skills learned in Speech Communication classes and to take on leadership roles. Like the salons of ancient Greece, meetings will also offer an unstructured opportunity for students to engage each other in the exchange of ideas and in discussions. Incorporating Quintilian’s vision for the ideal rhetorician, we will also focus on incorporating a service component into our organization by volunteering in the university community and the Ames community.
