Debating Society

Margaret Heffernan said it best when she said:

“For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate.”

Debating is a novice art and if not done right, it can lead to absolute and utter chaos. Joining a debating society in college opens your world to a plethora of knowledge, arguments and questions. Most importantly, it makes you confident to face the world head on.

As a member of ADYPU Debating Society, students get opportunity to travel to competitions which are great way to make new friends, improve your debating skills, and boost your CV. Students from all the schools at ADYPU participate for debating experience. This allows them to engage with the prevailing issues of the day, as well as arguments that have persistently challenged society.

Debating Society at Ajeenkya D Y Patil University conducts two debates every month, on the 2nd and 4th Friday at 4:00 pm in the University Learning Centre and training sessions on the 1st and 3rd Friday at 4:00 PM in the ULC.

Members who join our society will develop critical thinking, the ability to explore conflicting ideas and an improved oratorical ability which will be useful in any area of life. This society will also aid in honing personal confidence through public speaking. The club is designed to allow students to progress as fast and as far as their aptitudes and diligence permit.
