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 attending classes in the fall, let's start working on your pieces now. If you have a topic or performance idea, prior to the meeting, please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, come to the OCC - Orchard Ridge Campus G-Bldg. on Wednesday, Aug. 29th from 4:30-5:30 for a forensic overview.
The tournaments are free to watch and open to the public.
