To welcome its members from a summer hiatus, the New York Branch held a Fall Reception on September 24 at the ESU house. We welcomed Chessy Whelan and Matthew Willmore, USA Team Debaters from the ESU of the Commonwealth (Dartmouth House), for a debate with local
teams from St. John's University and Adelphi University. In front of a packed house comprising ESU members, as well as middle school students and their parents, these eight
debaters faced off on a very current topic:
This House Believes the EU should impose a minimum quota of refugees to be accepted by member states.
The ESU celebrates English as a shared language to foster global understanding and good will by providing educational and cultural opportunities for students, educators, and members.
