LAS-in-the-D

Wow! LAS-in-the-D was such a successful trip jam-packed with so many new memories and learning outcomes.

DEBATE? debate.

Going into my Introduction to Debate class this semester I was slightly concerned with how well I would do in the class. I had never taken a public speaking class or debate class, and in the past speaking in front of others used to terrify me. Before Introduction to Debate I felt confident enough to...
