Welcome to the Berry College Forensics Union website!

We are the Berry College speech and debate team comprised of an ambitious, fun, loud-spoken, extremely talented group of students of all majors, who empower themselves by speaking to others. Berry College is located in Northwest Georgia in a small town called Rome. Although Rome may be small, our forensics team makes a big impact nationally, competing at tournaments across the country. Since 1978, the Berry College Forensics Union has been speaking and debating with other colleges in the USA. 

Explore our blog and Our Team page to get to know our award winning competitors and the exciting events that are happening.
