Dinner and Debate, April 25th, 2013

In coordination with the Department of Communication and the Arts & Humanities Dean's Office, the team will be hosting a "Dinner and Debate" event on April 25th.  Tickets for the dinner are $50 and are partially tax deductible.  The evening will also feature a short debate and a dedication to a number of emeriti faculty from the Department of Communication.  Please join us and support your Barking Bulldogs Debate Team!

Alumni Association Partnership

The Communication Club has been established as part of the Alumni Association to help organize fundraising and promote the Department.  Contributions are tax deductible under the Club’s status as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

The team is supported through the University, but we rely on support from alumni and friends of the program to continue to grow and compete at tournaments on all levels of competition, both regionally and nationally. 

Upcoming Fundraisers

Contributions to the team and the non-profit Communication Club can be made at any time. Checks should be made out to FSAA-Communication Club and on-line credit card dontations are also accepted.

We will be hosting a dinner and debate event in April of 2013. If you are interested in sponsoring a table, attending the event, or contributing an item for the raffle or silent auction, please contact us.

Previous Events

We hosted our first major fundraising event, the GREAT DEBATE GOLF TOURNAMENT, at Belmont Country Club on May 4th, 2012.  The event was a lot of fun and a great success, allowing alumni the chance to reconnect with old friends and come together in support of the debate program. We thank all the supporters and participants and look forward to our next event.
