Each April, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, in conjunction with The International Debate Education Association (IDEA) host a debate tournament and intellectual exchange. We bring together an elite and internationally diverse group of debaters and adjudicators, along with world renowned public intellectuals.
The tournament is held in WUDC debate format. Rounds take place in Stern Hall with the exception of the final round, which is held in the Vandervort room.
In 2012, the Round Robin will be held from April 5-7.
Spring Debate Workshop is a three-day event comprising of an intensive two-day debate training program and culminating in a debate competition on the final day. The workshop will provide students with the opportunity to improve their critical thinking and public speaking skills, learn how to develop sound arguments, enhance their research abilities, and become accustomed to considering different points of view, as well as expanding their own horizons. The best debaters from Bishkek University league will conduct trainings and share their personal experiences of public speaking.
Get ready to debate in the city where the blue meets the green, the city where you cannot convince people that you get enough of food, the city that never sleeps!!! Till now, we've hosted top debaters in Istanbul like Syed Saddiq, Michael DG, Tasneem Eliias, Duncan Crowe, Rebecca Irvine and many more. This year the CA is going to be Great Again!
