Tobi Abubakare


Class of 2018



Gabby Stillman

Vice President 

Class of 2020


Gabby Stillman is a Computer Science major from Jupiter, Florida. Her first debate tournament was with the Rochester Debate Union in Fall 2016, and she feels so thankful to have a team that is welcoming to members with no high school experience. Last season, Gabby competed in the Worlds format, and this year she is excited to continue Worlds and potentially try Policy. Gabby is most excited to get to know the new group of novices this Fall and watch them become part of our community. Outside of debate and school, Gabby enjoys going to the beach and swimming.


Graeme McGuire

Worlds Captain

Take 5 Class of 2019



Cedric Bonsol

Policy Captain

Class of 2019


Cedric is a Psychology major and Spanish minor from East Los Angeles, California. He began competing in Policy Debate during the summer after his freshman year of high school, and is about to continue his sixth year of debate as a junior. Cedric looks forward to introducing novices to the extremely dynamic range of (unconventional) possibilities that Policy Debate has to offer in terms of argumentation. If you find him enjoying his leisure time, he’s probably singing, playing his ukulele, or dancing.


Dan Gomez

External Publicity Manager

Class of 2018


Dan Gomez, from San Juan, Puerto Rico, is a double-major in Business and Statistics and is double-minoring in Psychology and Computer Science. Having no debate experience prior to URDU, Dan now competes in both the Policy and Worlds formats. This year, Dan is excited for team bonding and seeing how everybody progresses in debate throughout the year. Outside of debate, Dan enjoys eating tasty foods, sleeping, and playing video games.

Bri Terrell

Internal Publicity Manager

Class of 2020


Bri is a sophomore from Centennial, Colorado double-majoring in Political Science and American Sign Language. She is entering her sixth year of competitive debate, from Lincoln-Douglas debate in high school to British Parliamentary/Worlds for URDU (though she has also experimented with Policy). This year, Bri is excited to increase the campus involvement of URDU and the publication of student voices on the team. If Bri isn’t debating, she is probably hiking, biking, attempting to write poetry, or jamming hardcore to Hamilton the musical.


Andres Ollarvez


Class of 2019


Andres is a Computer Science major from Maracaibo, Venezuela — the land of the beloved sun and the ever-lasting storm, where the weather is as contradictory as its people. Unless you count arguing constantly with his brother, Andres had no prior debate experience to URDU and now competes in the Worlds format. Andres is excited to be the scribe this year, but more importantly is excited to publish pro-capitalist memes in the minutes (this is a joke). Andres also is involved in Student Government and has written two articles in the Campus Times.
