There are lots of things coming up this week in debating! Come along and take your mind off exams.
INTERNALS – happening as usual!
FIRST YEAR FORUM – here is a message from your first year reps Penny and James.
Come this Tuesday at 6pm to The Tank for the First Year Forum with your loyal first year reps, James and Penny. We’re providing food, bants and laffs so bring all your family, friends, acquaintances and frenemies. But seriously, also bring some thoughts on how debating could be improved.
Emily, our awesome women’s officer, is running women’s forum on XXX. This is a great opportunity for women in debating to get together and talk about the various problems they face on the debating circuit! We’re very keen to hear as many perspectives and experiences as possible, so make sure you come along. The event will be posted on the ANU Debating Facebook page very soon.
Dom, the resident economics guru at ANU, will be coming this Saturday from 10am-12pm to run a seminar on economics and how to talk about it in debating. This is good preparation for Australs people, but everyone is welcome! Venue TBC, keep an eye out for the Facebook event!
INTERNALS GRAND FINAL
