HUF Students Win First Prize in National Inter-Collegiate Debate

Hot off the press!

Our Hindi (HUF) students Florence Kerns and Ishita Paul both won the 1st prize at the national inter-collegiate debate hosted by Yale University!

Florence won the 1st prize in the “non-native non-heritage speakers” category and Ishita won the 1st prize in the “non-native heritage speakers”

This is big news. Students from Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia, UPenn, NYU, Weslyan, UCLA and UTexas participated in the debate and the competition received both pre and post coverage by major Indian news channels.
