Union Student Safety HelpLine

Students Katie Moore, Chaz Stevens, Evan Jones, Brock Spencer, Yiyi Chen, Jordan Holmes and I all returned from a week at Cameron University’s Debate Camp this past Friday, July 27.
We learned a lot and slept very little, which is why I, for one, did nothing for the past two days that required any brain power. Katie Moore was in the Advanced Lincoln-Douglas Debate division where she learned, among many other things, how to know which topics were more likely to be chosen from the list of 10 published during the summer.
Chaz Stevens was in the Intermediate Lincoln-Douglas Debate division, the main goal of which was to give them a better and deeper understanding of philosophy as a whole, as well as how it relates to debate. The rest of us were in the Intermediate Cross-Examination Debate division, where we learned many things, including how to do paperless debating, which will allow us to spend more time developing our cases and less printing and filing evidence to share with our competitors, and most importantly (at least to us) we will no longer have to carry the tubs full of paper around. We’ve learned a great deal and are looking forward to using that knowledge to make our team even stronger than last year.
