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.
Our next tournament will be Saturday, Sept. 29 at SVSU. If you will be here in the fall, let's start working on your pieces now. Contact me so we can prepare you for the Sept. 29th tournament!
Come to the OCC - Orchard Ridge Campus G-Bldg. on Tuesday, July 24th from 1-3 to meet. I can answer your questions, and perhaps you can show me your possible pieces.
The tournaments are free to watch and open to the public.
