The Princeton Debate Panel competes nationally as part of the American Parliamentary Debate Association. The PDP is historically one of the most successful teams on APDA. In the 2015-2016 season, the Panel shutout Nationals, with two Princeton teams making it to the finals. Sinan Ozbay ’19 and Samuel Arnesen ’20 were 2018 Worlds Finalists, Bharath Srivatsan ’18 and Sinan Ozbay ’19 won Nationals, with Ani Dasarathy ’16 and Nathan Raab ’17 coming in second. Previously, Ani and Nathan had secured the title of “Team of the Year” for their competitive success throughout the entire season, and Ani also won “Speaker of the Year.”
