"I had the pleasure of taking COMM107 Oral Communication: Principles and Practices with Professor Meusa at the University of Maryland, College Park. From the first class, I was intrigued, amused, and excited to spend the semester with someone so personal yet professional. I looked forward to every lesson, every speech, and every class. With her guidance, the classroom became a safe, open setting and my classmates became like family. Professor Meusa gave me the first opportunity to speak about my most personal passions and encouraged me to share my most personal stories. In her class, I felt closure from past experiences and inspiration to continue to speak. She treated my classmates and me with respect and taught to change students’ lives, not to change their GPA’s. I am grateful to have had a professor like Professor Meusa and truly believe her future students are a lucky bunch."
