Tonight is the first presidential debate between Obama and Romney, but we’re betting you’d like to see something with a little more substance…and actual disagreement.
That’s why YAL is kicking off our Campus Debates series at IUPUI tonight, and you’re invited! We’re hosting three speakers — one conservative, one libertarian, and one liberal — to debate capitalism, war, the role of government, and other important issues the networks are too scared to ask about.
The debate at IUPUI is free to attend, and it starts at 6:30 tonight. It’s located in IUPUI’s Campus Center, MPR 450 C (map). If you’re in the area, we want to see YOU there!
All three of tonight’s speakers are true experts. This is sure to be a great debate! Take a look at our line-up:
