This speech, performance and debate team offers a high-quality learning opportunity. Our team competes from September-April, travels to two or three tournaments a semester, and OCC covers the cost of judging, registration and etc. Undergraduate students in good academic standing can compete in one or more events (Informative Speaking, Poetry, Dramatic Interpretation, Parliamentary Debate and more), earn college credit for their work, and may even be eligible for scholarship money.
The next tournaments are:
Saturday, February 17, Hillsdale College - Novice State Championships
Saturday, March 10, Eastern Michigan University - The State Championships
These tournaments are free to watch and open to the public.
(Students can begin working on events for these tournaments now!)
