English Debating Society

English Debating Society finds way to celebrate diversity and debates with intellectual ideas. Through logical consistency, factual accuracy and some degree of emotional appeal our debaters have been able to captivate the audience’s attention. The college and university have boasted the most refined tongues and sharpest minds. English Debating Society is a fruit of team-work.
The Debating Society has now expanded its horizons, and is achieving its goals day by day, we are travelling together, developing together and yes, we are achieving together with the passage of time. We believe in unity and for this we initiated bi-lingual debates, an unparalleled concept in the art of oratory which outshone all other annual competitions throughout the country. The Debating Society has made its mark in extemporary public speaking.
