After the wildly successful Fall Fireside Debates, the Butte College Speech and Debate Team and the Butte College Associated Students will host another round of “Fireside Debates” on April 25 and 30, 2013 at the Butte College main campus in the Campus Center Lounge. The event is designed to engage students in the debate process as well as educate students on the topics of drug and alcohol use in our community and freedom of speech. Each debate will be followed by a question and answer forum where audience members can participate by submitting questions or comments to the debate panel. The Associated Students anticipate involvement from students, faculty, and administration from the college. This event series is free to all and will include beverages and light snacks.
