The Podium. The Podium is a student-run organization which exists primarily to support and encourage public speaking skills among Bryant students. As part of their weekly agenda, Podium members provide constructive feedback to students looking for a forum on which to practice e-pitches, class presentations, and speeches. Communication skills such as writing, speaking, and critical thinking are important components to the philosophy of this organization.
