The SPSU Speech Team is your chance to build your research, communication, and networking skills through intercollegiate competition. We travel to tournaments across the Southeast, where we compete against other universities in public speaking and dramatic reading. With these 11 events, to choose from, you're sure to find one that interests you.
We believe in every student's ability to succeed in our activity. If you're an undergraduate SPSU student in any major, we welcome you!
You can earn up to 4 hours of class credit for competing on the Speech Team.
Actors James Earl Jones, Adam Sandler, and Neil Flynn all competed in speech.
Speech alumni have become world leaders, like U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, South African President Nelson Mandela, and U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson.
The friends and connections you make in our activity will stick with you for a lifetime.
