On Campus

The Communication Center (also called the Naugle CommLab)

The Communication Center is designed to assist students with any project related to communication, including–but not limited to–papers, posters, resumes, cover letters, and oral presentations. The services provided by the Naugle CommLab, such as tutoring sessions, in-depth workshops, and rehearsal rooms for presentations or high-quality recording, are free to Georgia Tech students. To make appointments, click here.

Here is their current mission statement:

“At the Communication Center, students from all disciplines at Georgia Tech work with tutors with expertise in core areas of communication. From tutors, students learn both conventional and innovative techniques of communication and diverse strategies for effectively conveying ideas. Students collaborate with tutors to improve upon defining, realizing, and relaying their own interests and needs as communicators. By talking with tutors about such aspects as the audience, format, medium, and style of their projects, students further develop their written, oral, visual, electronic, and non-verbal communication skills.”
