Why Can't We Just Communicate?!
Facebook; twitter; texting; skype. Clearly it's pretty easy to communicate these days. Is there any more to learn about how to get information across to others? At Drexel the answer is yes. One of the 12 Drexel Student Learning Priorities (that is, the goals for what you will learn by attending Drexel) is Communication. We'd like to invite you for pizza and some interesting conversation about writing, speaking, Drexel and you.
Some questions for discussion during our session:
In addition to participating in group discussions over pizza, you will leave the session with a clearer understanding of how writing fits into your Drexel education and how you can use your writing portfolio to market yourself for scholarships, fellowships, and graduate (and medical/law) school.
