Got a story to tell? Have you traveled and met people? Do you have an ear for other people’s stories? We will seek connection within our diverse university community through the art of storytelling. This First Year Aggie Connection will teach you how to tell a personal story in front of a live audience. We will cover storytelling basics and not-so-basics, including how to hook an audience, building interest and suspense, techniques for adding color, humor, and pathos, and delivering a powerful ending. We’ll also talk about what it’s like to perform in front of a live audience, and provide tools and advice for storytelling like a champ while having fun. We expect that you will feel energized by your connection with the audience, and supported by fellow storytellers. We will work towards the goal of telling our UC Davis stories at a Spoken World Story Jam event during International Week.
