‌‌‌Founded in 1875, the debate team is the oldest student organization on campus. The team is open to all undergraduates.

Although we are a parliamentary team we invite students with no experience or experience in other styles of debate to join us. Students from a variety of styles have been successful in our program.

Debate 2018

Rambler Debate Tournament

The Loyola University Chicago Debate Team hosts the annual Rambler Debate Scrimmage one weekend during fall semester. Each February we host a two day invitational that draws teams from around the country.

‌The debates follow the Midwest Debate Association’s BP guidelines.  Each debate a new topic dealing with issues of the day will be selected. Students are welcome to attend and serve as audience members if they do not wish to compete. For more information, contact David Romanelli.

Urban Debate League

Loyola is committed to the support of the Urban Debate League of Chicago. ‌Debaters often serve as critics/mentors for the UDL.
