Drinking Age Debate

The Center for Democratic Deliberation(CDD) will be hosting its first annual spring parliamentary debate on Wednesday, March 31 at 7 p.m. in 104 Thomas.

The debate will be about the current drinking age and whether it should be changed or not. Three speakers will represent each side of the issue, and audience members will be allowed to participate in the discussion. The three in favor of the current drinking age will act as the government, while the other three will represent the opposition in a parliamentary style hearing.

The CDD was founded in 2006 as a nonpartisan, interdisciplinary center for research, teaching and outreach. It concerns itself  with civic engagement and democratic deliberation. It is structured around the belief that a citizenry with knowledge and communication skills and a culture of informed deliberation are keys to a healthy democracy.

If you feel strongly about the drinking age, make sure to attend and voice your opinion tomorrow!

I grew up in a Philly suburb, then moved to a different one. I am now at Penn State, where I can actually sate my giant appetite for sports. Other than writing, I also play the cello in the Penn State Philharmonic.
