R: Freedom is Slavery

Thursday, March 31st at 7:30 pm in the Calhoun Parlor


Does Lady Liberty lead mean astray? Please join the Federalist Party as we debate what it means to be free. Are we enslaved to morality? Should we be? Are we more free when enslaved by first principles? Is freedom even possible? All are welcome.


R: Drill Baby Drill

Thursday, March 24th at 7:30 pm in the Calhoun Parlor


Join us as we take on energy issues, conservation, and environmental concerns. How should our country treat our oil reserves? Is this the best time to dip into them? What is on the horizon of energy technology? What is a conservative's duty to conserve nature? Would we be regressing to the early 20th century progressive desire to subjugate nature if we drill in ANWR?


R: This House Prefers Unions to Fat Cats

Thursday, March 3rd at 7:30 pm in the Calhoun Parlor


Join us to take on the recent battles over Unions nationwide. Have Unions gotten out of control? Who are the fat cats these days? Which benefits our country more? Yorkside, drinks, and speeches on the history and future of Unions will make for a jovial evening. See you there!

Please join us for our First Alumni Banquet Debate. We will bring to the floor speeches on the ethos, history, symbols, architecture, economies, and lifestyles of the two greatest capitals: the Capital of the World and the Capital of the American Empire. All are welcome.



Thursday, February 10th at 7:30 pm in the Calhoun Parlor


Please join us for this referendum on love, loss, and destiny. Must we build the Roman Empire? Or may we retire to pre-lapsarian homes of love and anonymity. Should we ever put career before relationship? Come to defend love, come to defend destiny, come to defend Dido!
