Presidential Election Discussion Set For Nov. 7

DATE:                   Wednesday, Nov. 7

TIME:                    12:15 to 1:15 p.m. 

PLACE:                Fine Arts Building Room 110 on the Rutgers–Camden campus

         On the day after the race for the White House is decided, Rutgers–Camden students will discuss and react to the 2012 election results during a special program open to the entire campus community. 

Sponsored by the Rutgers–Camden Department of Political Science, the students will discuss a number of topics including how international and domestic policies will be impacted by either the re-election of Barack Obama or the election of Mitt Romney.

The discussion will be led by Richard Harris, a professor of political science, Wojtek Wolfe, an assistant professor of political science, and Tim Knievel, a political science instructor.

The event offers a unique opportunity to speak with college students, many of whom are voting for the first time in this election, about the presidency.
