The Chicago Debate Society is the parliamentary debate team of the University of Chicago. We compete on the American Parliamentary Debate Association circuit and send debaters to tournaments almost every weekend. CDS has consistently met tremendous success on APDA, qualifying teams to Nationals every year and routinely winning Speaker and Team Awards at tournaments. We welcome prospective members of all experience levels to drop by our practices every Wednesday at 6pm and Sunday at 2pm in Cobb. For more information, please browse this website or direct any questions to our friendly officer board.
