Join us for Debate Watch Parties

Presidential Debate Watches

8-1O pm in ART 223

September 26th, October 9th, & October 19

It's that time of the four-year electoral cycle again: the leaves are turning, there's a slight chill or least less of an oppressive scorch in the air, political adds are making YouTube impossible, and the major parties' presidential candidates are scheduled to square off in a series of public debates.

• Are you sick of watching America's political leaders debate without anyone in the same room to commiserate or argue with?
• Do you take to twitter, facebook, or snapchat to vent your political views and court human interaction?
• Do you find yourself turning to the family pet and saying: "See, that's what I am talking about?"
• Wouldn't you like to a have an informed conversation about the issues driving this election?

Of course you would! Join the Department of Communication Studies and the UNT Debate Team for a presidential debate watch. We will watch, cheer, jeer, tweet, and discuss the event together. Bring a mobile device, a friend, and your political views.
Doors open at 7:30pm.
Debate begins at 8:00pm.
Before, during commercial breaks, and after the debate, audience members will have the opportunity to share their reactions and views.
