Texan Debate

Tarleton students participate in the Texan debate.


Tarleton State University and the Department of Communication Studies is proud to continue the Texan Debate. In the Spring of 2017, Texan Debate was formed to give Tarleton students a forum to talk about controversial topics that are important in today's society. Even though we will deal with controversial subjects we disagree on, we will learn to do so with civility, respect, and structure.
