Ty Joplin Give a quick glance at the debate community, and you’ll see frenetic brains hissing at each other at high-speeds, kids dressing like mid-career freelance journalists, feverish yet for the most part respectful rivalries, and passion. A whole lot of spitting, heated passion. Amongst our toils, differing opinions, and snarky comments, there’s the underlying center that we all gravitate towards: a love for the activity. A love for thinking, arguing, impressing, depressing (if you’re into narratives), and compressing complex realms of thought into well-crafted cases with contentions that compel or repulse whoever is listening. We love it. Many of us who graduate go on to coach and judge at tournaments, keeping alive the connections and bonds we cultivated during our initial 4-year tenure.
