About the Speech Communiation Labs

The Fremont campus Maggie Morrisson Speech Communication Lab and the Newark campus Communication Lab are available to all Ohlone students, staff, faculty, and the public who would like help with the development and delivery of oral presentations from research, outlining, delivery, and visual aids including PowerPoint presentations.

Please visit our friendly labs and see what we can do to help you in your educational success! We would love to meet new people!

The Speech Communication Labs are set up to provide one-on-one training with people coming in who need to prepare a speech for any class or public speaking event. People can also tape themselves practicing a presentation so they can review it and make improvements.

As the labs continue to grow, students, faculty, and staff wanting information on other areas of communication studies, such as interpersonal and intercultural communication, small group leadership, persuasion, etc., can also find resources here.
