ESF's Public Speaking Lab (PSL) is a free student-to-student service that supports the development of undergraduate students' public, academic, and professional speaking skills. PSL tutors work with students to develop successful presentations (from outlines to visual aids). The lab also functions as a rehearsal space and team room where groups of students can meet to plan, practice, film, and review presentations with or without a tutor. Located in 105B Moon Library.
