Good communication skills help you to more effectively share communication with others in class, in team or group projects, and professionally. The purpose of the Communication Resource Center (COMM Center) is to empower all Marietta College students to become better, more confident, and more engaged communicators.
Peer Consultation and Coaching Services
Communication is an interactive pursuit! Work with our peer consultants — Marietta College students recommended by faculty members — who have completed training to provide effective communication coaching!
