The BPCC Debate Team has enjoyed tremendous success in its first 12 years of existence, finishing each of those years ranked in the top 5 nationally and earning four national championships. No previous experience is required and the team is open to students in any major. BPCC’s Debate Team competes against the top colleges and universities throughout the nation; and, the team not only provides the opportunity for you to hone your advocacy skills against other high performing peers, but it also affords the opportunity to develop relationships with other universities (the vast majority of our team members have been offered scholarships to continue debating at other universities upon graduation from BPCC). 

The team typically travels to 5-7 competitions per semester (fall & spring), and we have a team practice once a week and individual practices as needed.  We also typically do a 3 day camp in late summer.  The team covers travel expenses and awards tuition waivers/partial tuition waivers each semester.
