Speaking Center
Nicholson Library Study Rm. 184

The Linfield Speaking Center, located in the Nicholson Library Group Study Room 184, is a place where students may go to receive help with their speaking assignments. We will assist students with individual speeches and oral reports as well as group presentations. Our operations are modeled on speaking centers at other college and universities throughout the country and are similar to those of the Writing Center. You may simply drop-in during regular hours with your assignment, your notes, or a rough draft of your outline (if you have one).

Services available to students:

  • Upon your arrival to the Center, a Peer Representative will greet you and be ready to assist you with your oral presentation needs. Our team of peer tutors will assist you with individual speeches and oral reports as well as group presentations.
    • We ask that you do your part and bring your assignment sheet and other materials with you to ensure the most effective consultation.

Speaking Center Staff:
