to the Whitman College Magazine Online. This issue explores the study and
practice of rhetoric and public address at Whitman College. Whitman offers
a strong academic slate that delves into rhetorical history, theory, and
criticism, arguments in law and politics, communication in the media, gender
and race-based rhetoric, public speaking, and more. In addition, the College
fields the nation's best all-around debate team and, this year, the first-place
winners of the Cross Examination Debate Association national championships.
"We encourage those who want to be leaders to become as good as they can be in the ancient and much celebrated art of public speaking."
