A novice is a student with less than four full semesters of college competition experience.  Students with junior/senior status CAN enter Reader’s Theatre, Parli, Public Debate (IPDA) and Group Communication.

We have made a number of changes to make things run smoothly, break as many students as possible, and end at a reasonable hour.  Please read the invite carefully.
