Lynn students had the opportunity to attend the Florida Communication Association in Orlando from Oct. 16 to 18.
A handful of Lynn students were invited to assist in the event planning process for the convention, as well as present their own work through posters.
FCA consisted of a variety of sessions presented by scholars, who would present in categories such as communications trends, pedagogy and media practices. The scholars included many of Lynn’s own professors.
Many of the presentations included the subject of technology, which plays a major role in both communication and education today. Lynn students were thrilled to be a part of this experience and seemed to have learned a lot from the presentations.
Senior Emilia Lujan attended the FCA and found the panel to be very intelligent.
“I was able to see informative presentations,” said Lujan. “I was happy to meet and learn from professionals on their topic of expertise.”
Students were honored to also have the ability to present their own ideas surrounding communication, alongside scholars. Catherine Kennedy, senior agreed that the poster sessions were a great way to present one’s work, and share it with scholars.
“It was a wonderful opportunity,” said Kennedy. “Because not only did we get to present in the audience of some knowledgeable presenters but we had the pleasure of meeting successful professionals in the communications field, which can benefit you in the future.”
Both Lynn students and professors supported each other’s ideas and presentations, carrying Lynn pride to Orlando.
“The FCA made me realize how fortunate I am to be educated by such talented professors,” said Joshuwa Deal, senior. “I feel I can rely on them not just as professors but as people.”
FCA was an encouraging experience for both students and professors.
