Dominican Students Attend Final Presidential Debate in Las Vegas
Political science and communications major Hallie Balch ’18 and business administration major Carly Holboke ‘17 were joined in the debate audience by President Mary. B. Marcy and Dean of Students Paul Raccanello.
Both Hallie and Carly have spent the past year immersed in politics as through their work with College Debate 2016 (CD16), helping identify and discuss issues that matter to young voters nationwide. Working as a Voter Education Partner with the Commission on Presidential Debates, Dominican created CD16 to draw on technology and social media to encourage civic engagement among college. To date, College Debate 2016’s social media campaign, #CollegeDebate2016, has received about two million hits from across the nation.
Both Hallie and Carly entered the debate hall hoping to hear candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump discuss issues rather than resort to personal attacks.
This is the third exit poll research Dominican has participated in on Election Day.
