If you’ve never debated before, or want a recap as to what it’s all about, there'll be a development seminar at 5 pm which will build on the things you can use during club nights. If you're keen to develop your skills as a judge you'll be able to trainee, and if you’re keen to get debating you’ll be able to put your name down and we will sort you into a team (or you and your friends can enter as a team). The night officially starts at 6 pm for debates and pizza, and there will be a fun game or event afterwards as a reward for all your amazing work!
Are you wondering how to start your semester right? Debsoc has you covered! Join us for our opening night!
Starting with our Development Seminar at 5pm, our Development Officer Robert Donohoe will introduce you to the basics of debating! At 6pm you will have the oppourtunity to sign up for a debate, or have the oppourtunity to watch our best debaters on show in a debate! We promise the topic will be very entertaining.
After the debating has wrapped up, we will walk to karaoke together for our opening night party! Make sure you sign up as this is a members only event! See our Facebook page for more details!
