Debating team champions call on CCAS


(June 27)—Debating champions UP Debating Society (UPDS) paid a call on UPD Chancellor Caesar A. Saloma at the Office of the Chancellor on June 26.

UPDS emerged as champions of this year’s Philippine Inter-collegiate Debating Championship (PIDC) and the United Asians Debating Championship (UADC).  UPDS was also the host of the two debating championships. 

PPIDC is the country’s largest collegiate debate tournament in Asian parliamentary format, while UADC is the largest inter-varsity parliamentary debate tournament in Asia, with over 600 participants.

Present at yesterday’s courtesy call were Weston Lee, Pamela Carbonell, Valeri Inting, Jesus Falcis, Lance Katigbak, Jose Escalante, Gelly Zacarias, Gabi Timbancaya, Erianne Salazar and Nicolle Renion.

UPD won the PIDC grand finals debate in April on “time travel” and “changing the events in the past and the future.”—MDJ
