American University’s Berk Ehrmantraut Gains Perspective from CD16 Peers
American University junior Berk Ehrmantraut got the experience of a lifetime this June serving as AU’s delegate to College Debate 2016.
“It was really interesting to see young people of all political ideologies, because when I’m with my group of friends, we all have fairly similar ways that we look at the world, so it was interesting to see the way young people from all over the country, all kinds of different schools, with different perspectives, which is a chance I don’t usually get.”
With an emphasis on the use of social media and technology as tools of communication, College Debate helps their student delegates learn how to engage their peers in politics and the issues that have an impact on the everyday lives of students. The Eagle chatted with Ehrmantraut to talk about his California adventures, and how he will bring this experience back to AU in the fall.
