Presidential debate broadcasts on campus lawn
Watch this year’s first presidential debate live on Georgia College’s front campus from 9 to 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The university is hosting DebateWatch, a gathering of campus and community members to watch the debate on a big-screen feed and to encourage conversations.
The event is free and open to the public.
“We hope DebateWatch gives us all an opportunity to become more informed about the candidates running for president and vice president,” said Kaitlin Alvin, senior English major and co-event organizer. “We also want to provide a setting where participants can express their views following the debates.”
The live viewing is a non-alcoholic event.
Pre-debate activities take place at 8 p.m., followed by post-debate talks after the televised program.
In case of inclement weather, the event will move to Georgia College’s Books & Brew coffee shop located on the bottom floor of the Library and Instructional Technology Center (LITC) on main campus.
Sponsored by the Georgia College American Democracy Project, rhetoric program and LITC, DebateWatch continues Thursday, Oct. 11, for the vice presidential debate from 9 to 10:30 p.m. on front campus.
