The University of Georgia's House of Controversy.

Excellence in Debate and Oration since 1820


The Phi Kappa Literary Society is a debate organization founded in 1820 at University of Georgia. We meet once per week during the academic year to practice oratory, debate, and creative writing. Our members strive to develop the necessary skills to present their views in an articulate and logical fashion while discerning the strengths and weakness of other positions. Through time spent in our Hall, we sharpen the public speaking skills vital to success in the professional world. As members, we forge bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime.
