Penn State College Republicans Host Speakers For Truth Week

The Penn State College Republicans have announced the chosen speakers for its annual Truth Week event, where the organization invites noted conservatives to speak at Penn State. Austin Petersen will hold his event on Monday at 8 p.m. in 201 Thomas and Kimberly Corban will be in 262 Willard on Tuesday at 8 p.m.

Petersen is a known Libertarian Party figure, having run in the party’s primaries for its presidential candidate in 2016 and finished second to the eventual representative Gary Johnson. Petersen announced on July 4 that he will be running as a Republican in the 2018 Missouri Senate race, hoping to win the nomination and defeat incumbent Claire McCaskill.

Corban is a sexual assault survivor and awareness advocate who is also known for her appearance at CNN’s “Guns in America” townhall, where she told her survivor story to then President Barack Obama. Corban will host a conversation on sexual assault and prevention.

College Republicans communications director Reagen McCarthy sees Truth Week as an important part of the College Republicans tradition and as a way of creating conversations amongst students.

“These speeches open up the dialogue and expose students to a fresh perspective,” McCarthy said. “I hope that students of all political ideologies join us, and hopefully leave the events with new ideas.”
