Benefits of Debate

There are many benefits. In fact most graduates when looking back on their college years confirm that this one activity had a more positive impact on their lives than anything else they were involved in during college, including their formal coursework. For most it teaches life changing, cognitive and presentational skills that will serve you in whatever the future may hold for you. You learn and polish critical thinking, public speaking, research and persuasion skills far beyond what you can learn in any other setting. You are trained to remain calm under duress, think outside the box, and resolve complex difficulties on short notice. All of this occurs in a fun, game like environment where you develop lifelong friendships with other team members. Most graduate schools and employers look very favorably upon forensics involvement. This definitely gives you a step up on the competition.
