New website!

We have made a brand new website for the use of UTA Debate Society, which is why this page will no longer be updated.

Many thanks for this year!

Last week we had our last meeting this spring so now it's time to wish everyone a great summer. The meetings resume next autumn when the new academic year starts - more info about the exact date will be posted here and on Facebook at the end of summer.

Anyway, I would like to thank everyone for a great year, and I hope you will all have a nice summer!

No Meeting Next Tuesday (March 1st)

Next week is the period break so there are little to no classes at the university and many are taking this as a chance to have a short holiday. So we're not going to have a debate meeting either next Tuesday on March 1st.

See you all again Tuesday after that on March 8th!

Meeting, 15th of February

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we had another fast-paced meeting starting with an exercise and continuing to a full debate of eight people. I'd like to remind everyone that the meeting starts at 5 pm sharp. Lately people have been showing up late so we can't start a full debate right away.

Anyway, the exercise we did meant basically working as a group to think of as many government and opposition points as possible for one motion. We used the motion "THBT arranged marriages should be outlawed" and we did find a lot of things both for and against! I definitely think we should do this more often.

The actual debate motion we chose was "THW ban television advertisements aimed at children". Very surprisingly the debate ended up being "girls vs guys" with girls defending the motion on the gov side and the guys opposing. I sincerely think this was one of the most interesting and even debates we've had for a while! Special thanks to our first-timers who also did a great job.

See you all next week!

How to get to E301

There's quite a lot of renovation going on at the university campus and at the moment the E-wing is cut out from the main building, so you have to take another route to get to our meeting. Here's the map of the campus:

The room E301 is in the E-wing, at the northernmost part of it. Simply walk under the huge tunnel and pass the door the tunnel is connected to until you reach the E-wing. Open the door under the building and climb up until you reach E301. (This door is roughly where the E-wing meets the D-wing, see the picture.) There's some construction going on outside as well, but don't worry, the E-wing doors can be accessed.

To kick off 2011, I strongly recommend you to join us in this year's first meeting, Tuesday, 18th of January. I can't wait to debate again! See you there!

Yet another last meeting before Christmas!

We had so much fun in today's meeting that we decided to meet one last time before Christmas. Next Tuesday, same place, same time.

It would be nice to know, though, how many people are coming, so please drop a comment on Facebook. See you all next week!
