This speech, performance and debate team offers a high-quality learning opportunity. Our team competes from September-April, travels to two or three tournaments a semester, and OCC covers the cost of judging, registration and etc. Undergraduate students in good academic standing can compete in one or more events (Informative Speaking, Poetry, Dramatic Interpretation, Parliamentary Debate and more), earn college credit for their work, and may even be eligible for scholarship money.
Congratulations to the OCC Forensic Team for all their successes this year. Please consider joining us for the February 13th virtual tournament! As Inc. Magazine says, “Public Speaking is No Longer a ‘Soft Skill.’ It’s Your Key to Success in Any Field." So, any improvement in your public speaking skills will support your success in college and beyond!
Coaching has started, and with the right planning, you could be prepared and shine too! Remote sessions are available, and observers are welcome. To set up a coaching appointment, email Ms. Bennett.
