College Republicans Announce Lineup for Truth Week 2015

The Penn State College Republicans announced the lineup for its fifth annual Truth Week, running from October 19-22.

Darian Gist, Chairwoman of the Penn State College Republicans, stated in a release that “Truth Week is our week long speaker series that we have put on for the past few years. This event brings to light many differing viewpoints that often times aren’t discussed in the classroom. This year’s speakers will be addressing hot topics that have become increasingly more relevant in the media. We welcome every member of the student body and media to come out to Truth Week to hear what the speakers have to say.”

Since its start in 2011, Truth Week has included distinguished speakers like  Ann Coulter, Herman Cain, and John Stossel

Here’s the 2015 lineup:

October 19: Katie Pavlich, news editor of Townhall.com, has spoken to media outlets such as MSNBC, CNN, and FoxNews. Her lecture title is “Firearms, A Woman’s Best Friend?” She will speak at 8 p.m. in 100 Life Sciences.

October 20: The National Rifle Association University will educate students on the NRA and its opportunities for college students at 8 p.m. in 111 Wartik.

October 21: Ward Connerly, the founder and chairman of the American Civil Rights Institute, will give a speech on the topic “Affirmative Action: Leaving People Behind,” at 8 p.m. in 111 Wartik.

October 22: Michelle Malkin will give a speech on the topic, “The Failures of Feminism.” Malkin is a syndicated columnist and founder of HotAir.com. You can see her at 8 p.m. in 129 Sparks.

With these speakers, the Penn State College Republicans hope to “bring light to the many differing viewpoints that often times aren’t discussed in the classroom.”

As in previous years, this event will be free and is open to the public.
