A Class Visit, and an Audience of 1200 College Girls

December 20, 2008

Quote of the day number 1: “I took this class because I thought it might help with my poker face.”—student in Dr. Jerry Hale’s Darius Goes West: A Case Study in Interpersonal Communication course.

Quote of the day number 2: “He’s sooo cute.”—girl in audience of DGW’s all-sorority screening at Hodgson Hall when crew-member Andrew started to talk.

Next up, Darius and crew went back to school: to meet up with the University of Georgia class of Dr. Jerry Hale, a longtime friend of the cause.

Dr. Hale, whose sons went to school with many of the crew members, uses Darius Goes West as a textbook in this class and in his Nonverbal Communication class. The class examines the ways the crew members interact in the movie, and the students apply what they see to communication more broadly.

It was a lot of fun to meet with the students, and we are grateful for all that Dr. Hale continues to do for DGW. Watch for a future blog that talks more about the class and how he uses the movie as a text.

Until then, thanks Jerry Hale and students!

After the visit—and a great lunch with Dr. Hale at The Globe—we headed to UGA’s Hodgson Concert Hall for a screening organized by Kathleen Robinson.

Kathleen, president of the Panhellenic Council at UGA, managed to make our screening a required event for all sorority pledges at Georgia!

It was a great venue. (The guys didn’t seem to mind the all-female company, either.)

Darius shared news about the year-long, million-DVD goal.

Afterwards, D. gave out autographs and talked about ways students can help further the cause. One initiative: DGW wants to get a bus in every sorority house at UGA! Let’s go, Dawgs.

It was great to meet with Georgia students, both with our class visit and the screening at Hodgson Hall. Thanks, Kathleen, Dr. Hale, and UGA!

    I really did think the class was ganna help me with poker! Although I must say the class opened up my eyes to something much more than illegal gambling.
