Posted: September 28th, 2012
SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- The Lake Superior State University Volunteer Center and LSSU Political Science Club will host a public viewing and facilitated panel discussion of the presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney on Wednesday, Oct. 3, in the Walker Cisler Center.
The public is welcome to listen to a faculty discussion of the issues beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Cisler Center's Peacock Cove and then watch the debate on television at 9 p.m. This Go Vote! event is funded in part through a grant from the Michigan Campus Compact.
As experts in their respective fields, LSSU faculty will discuss the issues to help students and the public become more informed about the issues that the candidates will be addressing. Voter information will be available at the event, as well as voter registration materials. Refreshments will be available, and the doors will open at 7 p.m.
"This event is open to the public and participants of all ages are encouraged to attend," said Shelley Wooley, director of the LSSU Volunteer Center. "We urge you to come learn about the issues, learn how to register to vote, and view the first of the 2012 presidential debates."
LSSU's Political Science Club is a non-partisan student group that tries to promote political activism and awareness at LSSU and in the community. For more information, contact club president Stephanie Jonas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
