A Presidential Debate Watch will be held at the University of Memphis on Wednesday,
Oct. 3. The debate will be shown onscreen in the Rose Theatre from 7 to 10:30 p.m.
Audiences at six Tennessee universities will be linked via satellite to watch the
debate and to discuss it afterward. They have been invited to bring their cell phones
and laptops, so they can participate in the polling that will take place before and
after the debate.
The U of M event is sponsored by the Political Science Department and Pi Sigma Alpha
national political science honor society, with assistance from Dr. Heather Larsen-Price
and her class that is studying the presidency.
More information is available from Dr. Larsen-Price at 901-378-8767.
