Toastmasters club helps people to overcome their fears about public speaking and become better leaders.  At toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment.  A typical toastmasters club is made up of 20 to 30 people who meet once a week for approximately an hour.  Each meeting give members several opportunities:  Conduct meetings, give impromptu speeches, present prepared speeches and offer constructive evaluation. 

The Oregon State Toastmasters club has been in existent for almost 50 years (since 1964). They hold lunchtime club meetings every Friday at 12 noon, at the Crop Science Building, room 119.  Their meetings are less than one hour (50-55 minutes), so you will have the opportunity to get back to your studies, research, work or social activities. You can come for part of the time or stay for the whole meeting.  The benefits of belonging to toastmasters are numerous: keen listening skills, ease in front of a group, time management skills, critical thinking, self-confidence, relationship building, and all in a positive and friendly environment. Don't wait too long, you can meet your goal.
