CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

Three students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences were interviewed by USA Today after the Democratic Debate last night.

Brian Voss, a senior in history and part of the Leadership Studies Program (coordinated by the Catt Center for Women and Politics), Carter Kemmet, a junior in statistics and part of the Vermeer International Leadership Program, and Emily Tosoni, a sophomore in political science, were quoted in the USA Today story alongside political heavyweights such as Kathy Sullivan, former New Hampshire Democratic Party chair, Dan Maffei, a former Democratic New York Congressman, and others.

The Catt Center, the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication, the Speech Communication Program, the department of political science, and the Andrew Goodman Foundation ambassadors co-sponsored a debate watch and discussion in Hamilton Hall. Following the debate, participants had an opportunity to voice their views on what they heard from the candidates. Iowa State faculty leading the post-debate discussions were Dianne Bystrom, director of the Catt Center; and Kelly Winfrey, assistant professor of journalism and communication.
