North Central’s nationally ranked forensics team routinely garners awards in the top tier of colleges and universities. Students from all majors become more articulate speakers, effective performers and critical thinkers as they participate in more than a dozen tournaments each year.
As a forensics team member, you’ll practice with your teammates and receive one-on-one coaching from the director of forensics and experienced volunteer coaches. Choosing material that interests you, you’ll compete during fall and winter terms; nationals are held in early spring, followed by a year-end showcase on campus featuring the best of North Central forensics.

- Travel to compete in state tournaments and national contests.
- Improve your writing, speaking, presentation and performance skills.
