Individuals and groups of students can consult with peer tutors as they prepare oral presentations, debates, group presentations, panel discussions, podcasts, readings, interviews, oral exams, poster presentations and more.
Oral Communication Center
The Oral Communication Center helps students and faculty reach Hamilton’s high standard for effective oral communication. The center provides students with one-on-one peer tutoring and group consultations. It also offers credit-bearing courses in communication skills, customized support for courses, workshops and seminars.
In this annual event, students compete for three different prizes: The McKinney Prize, The Clark Prize, and The Warren E. Wright Prize. Speakers’ presentations are either persuasive or informative in nature, and in one category students are asked to address an assigned topic.
