Oral communication skills are one of the first things employers, graduate schools and entrepreneurs need for success and the Central Texas College Speech Team helps students improve these skills in a fun and competitive environment. There is NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!!! We are looking for students who are charismatic, love to talk and perform and like a challenge.

      Our college has been successful at the regional, state and national levels with finalists in speaking, interpretation of literature and debate. This is an opportunity for CTC students to represent the college, sharpen their performance skills and have a great time.

       If you are interested in joining, we recommend you sign up for forensics (SPCH 1144) - a one-credit-hour class that will teach you about the competition events, provide practice time and find topics and literature to perform. Tournament travel is an integral part of the speech experience and Central Texas College covers the registration and transportation costs for tournaments.
