View Full Version : Community Colleges in forensics

I'd like to congratulate Stephen Totter of Suffolk Community College in NY. He placed first in Informative Speaking at the NYU tournaments this past weekend.
At NYU a girl from Brookdale CC also placed 5th in Pentathalon after breaking several events!
It is nice to see community college students doing so well considering that these programs only have students for 1-4 semesters. CC's also have very small budgets and cannot recruit like the big dogs.
I also wanted to mention that there are several community colleges with power programs. Glenndale, Mount Sac and Orange Coast should all be applauded for their ability to be competitive against 4 year universities.
Keep up the good work!!
First of all, were you at the NYU tournament this weekend?
Also, many strong community college programs claim competitiors on their squads for over 4 semesters when the competitiors are taking most of their coursework at a 4-year university but take 1-2 classes at the community college, even when the major university has a program. What do people think about this practice?

Mount SAC has some of the most amazing interp I've ever seen. Their duo blocking is crizzazy.

Yes. I was at NYU. It was a great tournament! Fl. State showed up!!
I must agree with the last post...Mount Sac's interp is awesome....they have some amazing coaches over there.
In response to the people at CC's who compete for more than 4 semesters...that should not be allowed.

Yes, Florida State had lots of fun up at NYU... I sure did!!! And I think there are some CC that have good Interpers... just gotta find em!

If you attend a school, you can represent that school, but if you're taking classes for the specific purpose of representing a team in a forensics compeitition, you need to get your priorities striaght. That would be stupid.

Some four year univesities do not have forensics programs which is why students may take the required six units at a community college in order to compete. I know there have been several competitors who have done this. They are still only allowed two phi rho pi tournaments.

The person from Brookdale CC who broke Pentath at NYU was Margaux Mcdaniel.
Nice work Margaux!! You rock!
