The Great Ideas Summer Institute program
Samford has taken young debaters like Alex Lamballe, Tripp Rebrovick, Lee Quinn, Evan McCarty, Gabrielle Tandet, Liam Jameson, and many others and created a record of success. These debaters have won Emory, NFL nationals, Woodward nationals, and many others. In college some have gone on to win the NDT and be ranked among the top 16 best teams in the country. Due to the pandemic, the Samford debate institute has moved online. Because of this change, the institute has slashed prices and is placing an increased emphasis on high quality online instruction.
