Recently, the URDU took a bus over to nearby Hamilton, New York to attend the Colgate University Open. The tournament had some great competition, with URDU students getting the chance to square off against coaches and debaters from other schools who are typically ineligible under the rules of intervarsity competitions.
In addition to the fun and great learning opportunities, the URDU took home an award. Our novice partnership of Ben Frazer and Graeme McGuire cleared to the novice final.
All told, the weekend was a great learning experience for all of our teams and excellent preparation for the US Universities 2015 Debating Championships in Anchorage.
