Q: How can I get tickets to the debate at Lynn?
A: Unfortunately, Lynn University will only receive a very limited number of debate tickets, and almost all of those will go to currently enrolled full-time undergraduate and graduate students.
The Commission on Presidential Debates controls the distribution of debate tickets, with the majority going to the candidates' respective parties. Based on precedents, the hosting university's allotted tickets are primarily for students, since the main purpose of hosting a presidential debate is to enrich our students' college education and experience.
Q: Since I cannot get a ticket, is there any other way I can be involved?
A: Yes! There are a number of ways that members of our community can be involved with the presidential debate at Lynn University:
*Volunteer - Hosting an event of this magnitude requires quite a bit of help, and we are looking for members of the community to partner with the university. If you are interested in volunteering for the debate, please visit the volunteer section of the Lynn debate website and enter your contact information. Once the volunteer application form is available, you will receive an e-mail with further instructions.
*Community Events - Leading up to the debate, there will be a number of debate-related events on our campus and in the community that will be open to the public. Be sure to continue to check the "Upcoming Events" section of this newsletter, as well as the activities section of Lynn's debate website.
*Become a Debate Donor or Sponsor - Lynn is still looking for debate sponsors and donors, which we look forward to featuring in upcoming editions of the Debate Insider. For more information on these opportunities, please contact Barbara Cambia, Director of Corporate Relationships (561-237-7360).
