Cicero, one of ancient Rome’s most famed orators, strived to “unite the tongue and the brain.” Barnard’s Speaking Fellows help students do just that by offering workshops and one-on-one sessions in which they can find, hone, and learn to use their intellectual voice effectively. This November’s Cicero Speech Contest brings Barnard’s best public speakers together for a lively competition in two categories: persuasive advocacy speech and impromptu speech. Come to be persuaded and entertained, and to meet promising young voices as they debate the topics that matter most.
