The presidential election is this Tuesday. Catch a “Mock Trial Debate” at Stroud Hall room 113 at 7 p.m.

The Political Science Club and College Republicans will be co-sponsoring a debate between sides of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton supporters.

“We look to keep the community, students active politically and create an environment where people can share their opinions. We give civic education where peers can get involved as a government,” Student Christian Colon said.

The event is a bipartisan and does not look to be prejudice to one side of either party.

There is a faculty moderator Dr. McGlynn, associate professor of Political Science, who will ask the questions that represents the students.

Each side will get a chance to give a response.

There will be free food and refreshments.

Students will also get a chance to ask the questions they feel to be most important.

Dr. Kimberly Adams, professor of Political Science, has previous experience in campaigning for political candidates.

She has helped with events and the PSC.

Political Science Club will also be handing out information on other ballot candidates for state representatives as one example.

The PSC will be hosting the live election results as they become available in The University Center.

PSC hopes to make the election results party a community-oriented occasion.

There will also be food and refreshments as well.

The Political Science Club coordinates study groups in Kemp Library.

They have been active for a couple of years and participates in many events and trips college students would not be able to normally partake in.
