continued “The club itself has a lot to offer in the way of polishing your public speaking and debate skills which I think are very valuable skills to have as your going out into the workforce,” Saccardi said. “You need to be able to present yourself in public and if you’re going into a field that might have you needing to defend your position or attack someone else’s position, it’s a good thing to practice that when you can.”
With the conference now behind them, SUNY Plattsburgh’s Model UN is planning a debate on the topic of NSA spying and Edward Snowden. The debate is open to the public, and they hope to be able to both inform the public on the topic, and get them excited about the issues involved.
The debate will be held on Nov. 25, from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Alumni Conference Room in the Angell College Center.
