Debate, Spanish Language

Join the Spanish Language section of the Cal Poly Debate Team!

Sep 27, 2016

Do you want to join a Cal Poly tradition and practice your Spanish?  Join the Cal Poly Debate Team, this year, which is opening a Spanish language section.


With debate, you will be challenged to think critically, systematically, and wholistically about policies and the values on which the nation and the international community are built. The Debate Team has been a part of Cal Poly since it opened in 1903, and has a long and stunning tradition of excellence.  With a program like this it’s no wonder that so many Cal Poly debaters go on to become leaders in their organizations and communities.


We are looking for students with a good command of the Spanish language who want to debate the ethical and moral qualities of government and international relations.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  Do not let it pass you.


Venir y presentar con nosotros este año, uno de los únicos programas de debate en español en los Estados Unidos.


Para más información contacta a Chris Stiles o Marion Hart
