It’s a brand new semester this fall and we at the San José State University Communication Center aim to help SJSU students with their educational needs. Our coaches, writing consultants, and peer advisors are ready to welcome and help all SJSU students who seek out our assistance with academic writing, public speaking, and general communication skills.
Last week, the Communication Center opened its doors with a new cast of Coaches, Writing Consultants, and Peer Advisors, but it was the COMM 80 students who had the busiest opening week. Our coaches introduced the COMM 80 students to Canvas, workshops, and modules that would prepare them for various Communication Studies courses.
We also had our first workshop of the year on Thursday, September 11th, teaching one of the most fundamental skills for university work. The APA Styles Citation workshop had our coaches teach the basics of APA style citations with hands on activities and informational handouts.
This is only the beginning of the year and we expect an influx of students into the Communication Center looking for help and we will be there to offer not just a helping hand, but our undivided attention as well.
