DEBATES ARE CONTINUED
University students are preparing to start the first debate tournament in April.
It has been already announced that YSU Student Council Commission on Educational-Scientific Affairs is going to launch YSU Debate Tournament in April. The main goal is to develop the culture and ethics of the debates among our students.

In this regard, on March 22, a tournament was held for the freshmen of the faculties of International Relations and Oriental Studies. The teams were debating on the issue Affiliation to the European Union or the Eurasian Union.

It was a really hot debate and the jury members also noted that compared to the previous game, this one was more interesting. Teams were more prepared, and the overall quality of the debate was higher.

In the case of the European Union we deal with a well-established structure with rich experience, and as for the Eurasian Union, here there is still the preliminary phase. Perhaps that is the reason that the supporters of the European Union won, - says future orientalist Vahan Kontanyan.

The jury was composed of the deputy deans of both faculties, Head of the Division on Student Affairs Vahagn Varagyan, Student Council Vice-chairman Vartan Ghaplanyan and head of the above mentioned commission Armen Khachikyan.

Such events are of great importance. The art of the debate is directly connected with our profession, it develops oral and rhetorical speech and the ability to answer quickly, - says one of the winners David Petrosyan.

Armen Khachikyan added that the main tournament will be preceded by analogous trainings.

The participants of the upcoming tournament will represent different faculties of YSU.
