Video: University of Illinois Restarts Debate Program
Les Lynn from Chicago sent me this video that tries to promote the fledgling debate program at Illinois. It uses old footage, the College Sports Television footage of the NDT as well as Urban Debate League footage from the CBS 60 Minutes story. It is an interesting watch.
The University of Illinois -- Urbana/Champaign began competing in NDT debate in 2005, after more than 15 years off of the intercollegiate debate circuit. The restoration of the U. of I. debate society is being led by Student Senator Chime Asonye and Forrest Sumlar. Chime and Forrest are juniors, and both UDL graduates. This is a video representation of their advocacy and vision for the debate society at the University of Illinois.
