- Summer Speech Lab hours are as follows: Monday through Thursday, between 7:00 AM and 4:30 PM.

Who can use the Speech Lab?

Anyone! Students and faculty are welcome to use the Speech Lab for any and all educational purposes. *Please note, Speech and Communication students have scheduling priority. The Speech Lab will be blocked out for campus use in the two weeks leading up to Speech and Communication course project due dates.*

What should I bring to the Speech Lab?

 - If you're a student, please bring your speech typed out and saved to either your phone or printed out. This will guide you while delivering your speech which will help optimize our time in the lab.

- If you're a member of faculty or staff, please bring whatever materials you need to facilitate the project you'd like to accomplish. If you email me ahead of time,, we can brainstorm all of the necessary accouterments, but this could be a laptop with appropriate software, for instance. If you'll ultimately need to capture footage from your laptop to utilize in your eLessons, please have appropriate screen capturing software pre-installed (VLC or Snagit for PC, Quicktime for Mac). If you're not familiar with any of the previously mentioned applications, I will help you get set up for screen recording.
