Seniors are off to a great start!

The Oxford Scholars Seniors have settled in after their first 24 hours on the new topic. The lab is writing three affirmatives this wave -- a policy version of the revokation of the gag rule policy, a critical version of the revokation of the gag rule policy, and an Aff that increases assistance to the military in South Africa to stop disease spread.

Students yesterday engaged with Dan, Casey, and Tara on what makes for good affirmatives on this year's topic. Students heard three lectures on Africa and started researching.

The kiddos are energized, engaged, and ready to go!

Camp off to a great start

Registration went swimmingly. We started the day with our first labs and some lectures. Ben Voth lectured on the history of public health, Rebecca Voth proved that most campers in fact were not smarter than a 5th grader. Mike Risen lectured on the topic. We talked about possible Aff ground and how the topic is shaping up.

Send your pictures to spring.sarah at gmail.com and I will put them up on the blog!
