Office of Alumni Relations
We recently had an informative presentation about our Office of Alumni Relations: http://www.twu.edu/alumni/. You can do your part by giving the Office of Alumni Relations any updates you have on the graduates in your department. The Alumni website has departmental alumni web-pages, an e-newsletter, networking groups, and much more. They also have the Alumni House Sun Room which holds 20 people available to be reserved for use by student organizations, etc.
Did you dread book reports in school or presentations in college? Does the thought of speaking in front of a group of people make your knees go weak and your mouth dry? Would you rather go head to head with a rattlesnake than give a speech? If so, you aren’t alone! Public speaking is usually ranked as one of the top ten things people fear the most. Toastmasters can help! Toastmasters International: http://www.toastmasters.org/ is an organization dedicated to improving public speaking and leadership skills by providing a friendly, supportive environment with proven programs.
