Last weekend, the UTSA Debate Team traveled to Kansas City, Missouri to compete at the first national tournament of the season.

10 students participated in the tournament, accompanied by assistant coaches Philip DiPiazza and newly-hired Kristiana Baez, a former debater from the University of Oklahoma.

UTSA finished with an overall winning record, claiming victories in 21 total debate rounds. Diana Elizondo (soph.) and Blaire Warren (soph.) were tournament champions in the Junior Division. Karmenly Alegria (fr.) was ranked 5th among the top individual speakers in her division, and Bianca Salazar (fr.) was ranked 8th. Alegria and Salazar also reached the quarter-finals round of the tournament, placing in the top eight.

For the past three years, UTSA students have experienced the echoes of the Renaissance firsthand within the ancient Roman walls of Urbino, Italy, World Heritage Site and birthplace of the great sixteenth-century master Raphael.

The COLFA Semester in Urbino has allowed graduate and undergraduate students majoring in areas as diverse as English, Psychology, Math and Engineering to take up residence at the University of Urbino (UNIURB) for 13 weeks of specialized courses, cultural activities and trips to some of Italy's most significant sites. Topics of study include art, music, drama, history, literature and Italian language in a curriculum designed and taught collaboratively by UTSA and UNIURB faculty.

During their time in Italy, students travel to Rome, Florence, Siena, Verona and Venice, as well as numerous other cities and towns throughout Italy. Participants are also given the opportunity to go hiking in the snowy Apennine Mountains, explore medieval castles nestled within the lush Italian countryside and bask in the Mediterranean sun on the beaches of the Adriatic Sea.

Registration is now open for both the Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 programs. Students interested in learning more are welcomed to attend an information session Thursday, September 18 at 4:00 pm in MB 2.314.
