Brooke Betit

If you had never met Brooke Betit before, you might wonder why she would be talking to a wall. For the freshman broadcast major from Ashland, OH, this is a normal rehearsal activity when she is preparing for a speech.

Brooke joined OU’s Speech and Debate team this year, has participated in numerous tournaments and has already won an award for Top Novice in Persuasion and Communication Analysis at the Berea University Tournament.
Her favorite type of speech is persuasion because, “you learn about a problem and what is causing it and then you learn how you can fix it. So I feel like I am accomplishing something by bringing awareness to a problem.”

Her favorite part about college is experiencing new things every day and having the option to explore something more in depth if it is something that interests her. In her spare time, Brooke enjoys hanging out at Perk’s and her favorite food is gyros.
