Tickets Still Available for the “Great Debate”

Two political heavyweights will descend on Penn State’s campus tomorrow night for what some are deeming “The Great Debate” (at least that’s what it says on the tickets). Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs will square off in Schwab Auditorium at 8 p.m. to debate the role of government in a free society.

Hosted by the College Democrats and College Republicans, tickets are still available for the event. You can stop by the HUB information desk or Eisenhower Auditorium today and tomorrow to pick up your free ticket until they’re gone.

“I’m very excited that these two figures are coming to Penn State to debate,” said College Republicans President Jordan Harris. “There’s no other campus that has been able to get the speakers that we have been able to get in the past year.”

The event cost $40,000 from the student activity fee, so you might as well go and get your dollar’s worth, right?
