The Debate and Speech team is a unique organization where it is possible to increase your communication skills, become more articulate, and gain knowledge of current events. Research is not required to be competitive, although a broad base of general knowledge is useful. Debate forms include Parliamentary, which stresses spontaneity and quick wit, and Team Value, which concentrates on factual evidence and cross-examination. Throughout the year, many speech tournaments are held offering such events as Novice Reading, Student Congress, and Children's Literature. In the past, qualified members have had the opportunity to compete on a national level.
Monday & Wednesday evenings, 7:30-9:00, meet in Room 204
