Michigan Debate Institutes Alums This Year Have:
Our Students Say...
"I've attended camp at Michigan for the past three years. The thing that kept me coming back was the excellent instruction and lectures the camp provided, and the lab leaders genuinely invested in helping each debater's improve and achieve their goals. The town of Ann Arbor is great, the people at camp are interesting, and the quality of competition is second to none. There's no better place to go if you want to ensure your success in debate."
- Ryan Keenan, Juan Diego Catholic High School (UT), Quarterfinalist at the 2012 Meadows and Alta Tournaments, 8/22/12
"Being from Texas, I never knew how awesome Michigan was. The teachers were some of the best and smartest people I have ever met. I can honestly say that I never would have gotten to this point without the help of the Michigan Debate Camp. The people were great, and I honestly am so glad that I went to Michigan the summer before my senior year."
- Humza Tariq, The Kinkaid School (TX), Top Speaker at the 2012 St. Mark's Tournament, 7/31/12
"The Michigan Camp is unmatched in the experience it brings for all lucky enough to attend it. The Seven Week Junior's Programs put together the most qualified judges and peers to help me utilize my skills and become a much better debater. The intense researching skills encouraged by the camp gave me the most comprehensive view of the upcoming topic that cannot be met by any other camp. Alongside the beautiful campus and delicious food, the camp is home to my fondest memories concerning the friends I've met and made during the seven weeks. Don't miss the opportunity to become a part of one of the greatest experiences you may ever have."
- Michael Koo, Centennial High School (MD), Quarterfinalist at the 2012 Glenbrooks Tournament, 8/14/12
"Coming to Ann Arbor for seven weeks was great- not only because the campus and surrounding area is phenomenal. The camp also allows you to get better at every aspect of your debate skills. The teachers are always accessible and willing to answer questions. There is almost no time during the camp where there isn't something you could be doing to improve your debate skills. It is all around a great way to spend a majority of your summer doing an activity you love."
- Neil Patel, Glenbrook South High School (IL), Winner of the 2012 Dowling Paradigm Tournament, 7/31/12
