The Northwestern Debate Society continued its successful tradition, earning first place in the Henry Clay Invitational at the University of Kentucky Oct. 4-5 to become the best team in the nation.

After a grueling invitation-only round robin against the eight best teams in the country, Northwestern clinched an overall victory, including a win over the award-winning Berkley team.

The Debate Society is the oldest co-curricular student organization at Northwestern. Established in 1856, one year after induction of the University's first class of students, the Debate Society is the oldest and most successful continuous program of its kind in the United States.
