If you desire to be a more confident, polished speaker, then you should consider joining one of the Notre Dame Toastmasters clubs. There are two clubs on campus, and the best way to learn about them is to stop by a meeting. The clubs are open to Notre Dame faculty, staff and graduate students. Guests are always welcome to both clubs!
