British National Debate Team to Challenge Penn State

Penn Staters will be able to channel their inner-Denzel Washington next month as the Penn State Debate Society will play host to the British National Team on November 9.

The two sides will discuss the question “Should Hip Hop Clean Up Its Act?” Funny enough, the debate is scheduled to take place two days after hip-hop stars Macklemore and Ryan Lewis come to the Bryce Jordan Center.

Freshman and townie Nathan Arnett along with Debate Society president Kevin Li will be pitted against two British students, one from the University of Kent and the other from the University of Sheffield. The event will also allow audience members to give speeches, and will be moderated by Penn State Debate Society Vice President Jordan Todd.

The British National Debate Team goes on a two month tour of the United States every year, traveling to various places across the country with two students who engage in public debates with American students.

The event will run from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in 121 Sparks and is open to the public.
