The Brandeis Debate Team (BADASS) is a member of the American Parliamentary Debate Association, or APDA, and is the second ranked team in the nation. Members of the team compete in tournaments across the country and around the world. Meetings are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Olin Sang 112, and are open to anyone. We are also the top ranked team in the country not to host try outs, and absolutely no experience is necessary.
Additionally, the Brandeis Debate Team works with other groups such as The Boston Debate League (BDL) to send mentors to teach debate, and other clubs on campus to collaborate and great public debates.
