The Cicero Speech Contest strives to promote a speaking culture at Barnard where speaking is an intellectual expression and powerful tool for advocacy; where speaking well is valued, evaluated, and rewarded; where students use opportunities such as this event to voice issues which matter to them and affect real change; and where Barnard students hone and employ their voices for transformation.
Every fall before classes begin, Barnard’s New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) rolls out the welcoming bins for first-year, transfer, and international students.
