February 2016

Quote of the Month

“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” – Maya Angelou

Tip of the Month

Remember, when selecting a speech topic, it is important to select a topic that is relevant to your audience, which requires you to get to know the diverse group of individuals in your class. Once you have selected a topic and begin the research process it is important to recognize yourself and your own position, that way you can be conscious not to approach your research process from your angle alone.

Speech of the Month

A very moving and inspirational speech delivered by EIU’s own Austin Mejdrich, a Political Science major from Charleston, IL. This speech took place at the FundEIU Rally on Eastern Illinois University’s campus in February 2016.

What a Speech!!! #FundEIU
