On December 3, the Georgia Debate Union debated representatives from Freedom University (Georgia) over whether immigration status should be used as a criteria for college admissions decisions.
The event was a huge success - over 100 students and faculty attended the event in the Miller Learning Center and a wonderfully informative debate took place. Freedom University argued that immigration status should NOT be used, while the Georgia Debate Union defended such criteria.
It was the first of hopefully many collaborative efforts.
The Georgia Debate Union would like to extend a huge farewell and thank you to our graduating seniors. Amy Feinberg, Cara Venezia, Maggie Davis, and Rayan Momenah have all contributed in various, important ways to the Georgia debate team and UGA at large and we are excited to see each of you succeed in your future endeavors.
The Georgia Debate Union would also like to extend a special shout-out and thank you to Shyam Shanker - an amazing representative of UGA, a talented researcher, and a strategic debate mind. We know you'll excel as you start law lchool at NYU in the fall.
