Students planning mock presidential debate

Election 2012

Members of the social and international studies faculty have arranged a student mock presidential debate to be held on Mon., Nov. 5, from 12-1 p.m. in the Student Center Theater.

Students majoring in political science and international studies will participate in the debate. Each of the three students on Team Obama and the three students on Team Romney will be responsible for a different area of public policy. A student moderator will facilitate the discussion with questions posed by other students.

Ballots will be distributed to the audience and a vote will be taken after the debate to determine which team won. The winning team will be announced on Tues., Nov. 6, the day of the 2012 general election. All students, faculty and staff members are encouraged to attend the event and vote for whichever team they find most convincing.

A meet-the-candidates reception with light refreshments will precede the debate, beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the lobby of the Student Center.
