Reflections on 2012-13: Positive Experiences

There’s a lot of drama and conflict brewing elsewhere on this site, but it might be worth tabling some of that to discuss positive experiences that people have had this season. In the midst of fights, the debate community can seem like a pretty polarizing, hostile place, but there also all sorts of statuses from graduating seniors testifying about how helpful debate was, or how great a time they have had.

So, what have you most enjoyed about debate this season? What memories will you look back on fondly in a few years? What trends make you excited to stay involved in the community?

Please keep posts positive; there are other on-going threads where concerns can be addressed, but this should be removed from those conversations.
