Speaking of Honors
No debate necessary — Suffolk’s forensics team is the best in the region. The University’s team won 11 trophies, including the coveted title of Northeast Regional Champions at the New England Regional Championships, hosted at Suffolk this spring. Forensics, which comprises the skills of public speaking, competitive speech, and debate, requires participants to deliver various types of speeches on a range of subjects. “Forensics provides a valuable complement to the academic experience,” says team coach Jodi Nevola MA ‘99, who also teaches in the Communication & Journalism department.
“Members hone the art of public speaking and arguing — skills that will benefit them throughout their educational and professional careers.”
