Um, Like, Ya Know?

Do you, uh, maybe, want to improve your public speaking skills? Do you aspire to, like, uh, remove annoying fillers like these from your language bad habits? Then join Ithaca College Toastmasters Club.

This group of dedicated students, faculty, and staff meet every two weeks to encourage each other in improving our public speaking ability.

Toastmasters is a wonderful opportunity for faculty and staff to continue to improve public speaking skills through practice in a warm, friendly atmosphere that still provides constructive feedback that will lead you toward improvement.

Toastmasters is a wonderful opportunity for students to practice public speaking skills in an atmosphere that provides professional feedback yet doesn’t have the stress of receiving a grade.

Guests are welcome at all meetings. Please come join us to see what we’re all about! Our next meeting is Tuesday, October 11 at 11:00 a.m. in the Campus Center conference room.
