The Small Groups communication class put on a Project Runway show outside the Tech Center on Thursday May 19, in which groups displayed their creativity through costumes.

Instructor Leslyn McCallum said that the event was an exercise in creativity that was inspired by the display of Elizabethan costumes at a Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon.  McCallum added that creativity is an important aspect of communication and teamwork because creativity requires brainstorming and listening.

“It’s one of the few classes where they get to know each other so well,” said McCallum.

The event was judged by the dean of the language arts department, Dr. Keiko Kimura.  Group 4 won with their costume as modeled by Tony Nguyen, 63, a medical assistance major, and designed by Rolando Salom, 28, a fine arts & media arts major.  Kimura praised all the groups but loved Nguyen’s swagger down the walk way. 

Nguyen was clearly trusting of his group members because when asked how he felt about wearing the costume.

“I haven’t seen myself in the mirror yet,” said Nguyen.
