Danial Manzoor will be returning in his fourth and final season on the circuit as head delegate at Rutgers University. He will be leading a Rutgers delegation that is poised to improve from its 16th place finish overall last year in our rankings.
What are your goals for this year for your team?
The Rutgers University Delegation will hope to bring our best team to every conference this year and my goal is get our members to truly feel passionate about the topics they debate. I believe that the delegates that debate a topic not only for competition but also because they really care about what they are debating, makes a huge difference in the overall experience of a Model UN simulation. For Rutgers, this year has been one of the most competitive in terms for tryouts to make a conference team. My goal will be to create a healthy mix in veteran returning members with the new pool of talent we have at Rutgers this year. Additionally, my goal is to lay the groundwork for our team to host our first annual collegiate conference, possibly called RMUNC in the near future. Our team has significantly grown, and I hope to have the best MUN season for Rutgers to date.
What are you most looking forward to this season?
Rutgers, this year has a packed schedule. We are attending a record number of conferences to date for our team and hope to add even more during the spring semester. Annually we look forward to UPMUNC and HNMUN, but in terms of travel, McMUN is a classic conference that the team is excited for. Since this is my final year on the Model UN circuit, I personally would love to take a team to WorldMUN this year, as that would complete my personal MUN experience, as well has have Rutgers represented in the International Rankings!
Each day leading up to CMUNNY, Yale’s SCSY and Boston University’s BarMUN, we’ll be featuring a few teams. If you would like to see your team featured, and Best Delegate hasn’t contacted you, please reach out to Mari Manoogian at firstname.lastname@example.org
