Election 2012 campus debate watch in October

Fresno State students and faculty will participate in four debate watches on campus during October, the first of which is 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Alice Peters Auditorium in the University Business Center.

Participants can bring an I-CLICKER to participate in on-site polling while they watch President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and Republican nominee Mitt Romney debate domestic policy.

Three other watch and poll events are scheduled leading up to the Nov.6 election at the same time and location. They are:

  • Thursday, Oct. 11 – Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan: “Foreign and Domestic Policy.”
  • Tuesday, Oct. 16 – President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney: “Town meeting format including foreign and domestic policy.”
  • Monday, Oct. 22 – President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney: “Foreign Policy.”

All events are free, sponsored by the Departments of Sociology and Political Science and the Sociology Club, College Republicans and College Democrats student organizations.

 For more information, contact Dr. Matthew Jendian, associate professor and chair of the Department of Sociology and coordinator of the university’s Humanics Program, at 559.278.2234 or matthew_jendian@csufresno.edu.
