Interested in joining the McGill Debating Union? It’s easy! All you have to do is show up to one of our events/practices and indicate your interest in being involved. Experience is not required. At practices, you will be paired with people who are at or around your level of skill and experience.
To keep updated, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, to be put on our mailing list. Our listserv goes out once a week – typically on Tuesday night (Eastern Standard Time). It contains info on upcoming meetings, events, and tournaments!
You can also request to join our Facebook group. We’ve also created a Facebook group for novices (folks who are new to university debate.) You can also “like” our Facebook page. We also have an Instagram that we update regularly. We have a Twitter too!
We are in the process of transitioning from online debating to fully in-person practices! On Mondays at 6pm EST, we host show debates where club members can watch some of Canada’s best debaters in action. On Thursdays at 6pm EST, we have practice rounds for everyone who would like to participate!
