Communications

The POWER of Communications

2015 students practicing public speaking skills

Communicating the New, Communicating You 

"The course taught me to move outside my comfort zone and push for success and understanding." —2016 participant

July 16-July 29

We live in a thick soup of marketing messages. Cigarettes are sold as an essential accessory for achieving coolness. Food companies slap meaningless labels on items to attract "conscious consumers." Environmental organizations warn of impending doom to solicit donations. 

Communication skills are essential for creating positive change. Students in this course will acquire the fundamentals of effective oral and written communication, for both personal success, and social and environmental impact. They will write personal reflections informed by their passion for social justice and sustainability, with the goal of completing a draft college application essay. Public speaking “boot camp” will empower them to more effectively advocate for themselves and the issues that matter. And they will gain real world experience as communications consultants, partnering with local nonprofits in Oberlin to help them tell their stories more effectively. They’ll emerge prepared to succeed as more articulate leaders in an increasingly hyper-connected and mass mediatized world.
