Speaker Showcase

Each semester, the Speaker's Showcase brings you the best speakers of the over 500 USF students currently enrolled in Public Speaking and Written and Oral Communication courses in the Department of Rhetoric and Language. All the speakers were nominated by their instructor or by class vote, and the best-of-the-best were selected by a faculty committee. Join us for an hour of eloquence and reason.
