Ending its three year hiatus in university debate competitions, the WVSU College of Mass Communications sent representatives to the annual Bangi-anay Debate Competition sponsored by the University Student Council.
The college’s debaters are Hyacinth Bangero, Allen Gerard Daguay and Denise Tesoro with understudies Louis Lorenzo Lalisan, Reesa Isabelle Facon and Jonthan Gange. Serving as adviser of the CMC debate team is Prof. Edel Carmela Subong. “This is a milestone. The college would really like to make a comeback in the debate arena since we are producing dynamic speakers and commentators. I’m really looking forward to watch this event – Ma. Antonette Caldeo, 4th year Journalism student.
The first match of the college will be against the College of Education on September 14, 2012 at the PESCAR Gym. Winners of the elimination phase and the highest scoring college will move on to the finals and compete for debate supremacy on September 17, 2012 at the WVSU Cultural Centre. “This is an achievement for the College of Mass Communications to be able to send an entry for Bangi-anay because this will be a very good avenue for learning” – Jester Paul Bacabac, Committee Chair CMC Debating Team.
CMC students are highly encouraged to support their representatives on the 17th. Competing colleges include the College of Education, College of Nursing, College of Arts and Sciences, Integrated Laboratory School and the College of PESCAR.
