Future Debate Team Members

3 debaters in snowWelcome to Fresno State.  We hope you will join the Barking Bulldogs Debate Team.  Experience is not necessary to join the team.  We participate in competitive off-campus debates and public debates on campus and in the larger community.

The team is open to all CSU, Fresno students and we encourage you to ask any questions you might have about the program.  We do not offer scholarships based exclusively on debate, but previous participation in debate can help with admissions and with many of the other scholarship opportunities on campus.

The focus of the team is to enhance argumentation skills along with advocacy, research, and academic achievement.  We welcome your involvement!  Contact us with any questions.
