Student Night: Sophistry Showdown

Presented by ASDSPT

Looking to use all those rhetoric skills you're learning?

Trying to find the right time to test out your knowledge?

The 2015 Sophistry Showdown is the venue for you!


How does it work? Simple. We'll give you the debate question ahead of time. Sounds too easy? It is.

You won't find out what side you're arguing for UNTIL the day of the debate!

When: November 10th @ 7pm

Where: DSPT

Why: Meet students from across the GTU!

We also provide pizza & beer. Did we mention that?


The Question: Is environmental pollution a sin?


All students from around the GTU are welcome to sign up. ASDSPT will format the teams by November 9th, and then let you know what team you're on! We'll provide teams with further instructions as we get closer to the debate.

Don't want to debate, but still want to join? Good! Even if you're not on a team, we'd love to have you participate in the audience. After two rounds of dialogue between teams, audience members will have a chance to particpate.
