Three communication studies graduate students from Fort Hays State University recently attended the 18th annual Sooner Communication Conference at the University of Oklahoma.
Chen "Mylla" Ding, China, presented "Major Communication Barriers that Exist for Homosexuals in Today’s China." Bonnie Rupke, Hays, presented "Smiling: What is in it for You?" and Luo "Jessie" Zhai, China, presented "Interviewing Skills for Non-Accounting Majors Who are Applying for an Accounting Position in a Chinese Accounting Firm." These papers were completed in the first semester of the students' master’s program.
The students were accompanied by Dr. Carol Haggard, chair of the Department of Communication Studies, who served on a panel titled "Relating in the Workplace: An Examination of Communication on Organizations."
