RU-N Debate Team Honored for National Championship Wins


In celebration of the Rutgers University–Newark (RU-N) Debate Team's 2017 national championships, the team was honored in a whirlwind of May celebrations. On May 3, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka honored national champions Nicole Nave and Devane Murphy in a ceremony at Newark City Hall. On May 10, the RU-N Chancellor’s Office, SPAA, and the Newark Debate Academy sponsored a reception for the team at Clement's Place at 15 Washington Street to celebrate its recent accomplishments and its legacy of excellence. Then the festivities continued on May 11 during the 10th Annual Creation Nation Art & Peace Parade in Newark that featured a debate team float with Nave and Murphy waving to the crowd. The team also found its way into the New York Times and the Star-Ledger as part of a full-page ad spotlighting championship teams at Rutgers!
