VOXs communication event begins today at MSC
VOX: Students for Choice at Marshall University will host its first event of the semester to encourage open communication between students.
VOX will set up in the Memorial Student Center Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
VOX will ask thought provoking questions and give gifts to whoever participates.
VOX will have a large sheet of paper for students to write down answers to the questions and will have informational material about the importance of honest communication.
The group wants to reach as many people as possible and educate them on the best methods of communicating in relationships.
VOX organizes events to educate people on campus about sexual health and raises public awareness about reproductive rights.
Jordan Bean, VOX president, said she believes honest communication is the only way to have a healthy relationship of any kind, whether it be romantic or platonic.
We want to educate students about the importance of being truthful about how they feel in all scenarios, Bean said.
Bean said she believes student attendance is necessary because nothing is more important than communication.
It is critical to maintaining relationships of all kinds, and being a strong communicator can do nothing but benefit you, Bean said.
Josh Meredith, VOX secretary and treasurer, said knowing how to communicate is necessary for standing up for rights or having a voice.
We will be asking some questions about students day, what was the highlight of your day? and even some provocative questions, what turns you on? to encourage openness and honesty, Meredith said.
In the past, VOX has registered nearly 80 people to vote at the Voter Registration Drive, they have hosted a screening of the documentary No Woman, No Cry, that was attended by over 60 people and hosted a Super Sexy Honesty table that encouraged open conversation about sexual health and birth control.
Meredith said even though the group did not form until last semester, they did some successful events and they hope to continue this semester.
