UConn students also debated students from Wesleyan University at the Wesleyan University Shasha Conference on Political Economy of Oil. The proposition for the Wesleyan debate was ‘The Keystone XL US-Canada pipeline should be built.’ The UConn debaters were Caroline Griffith (pictured 2nd from left) and Carl A.
