The event begins at 8:30 pm. After viewing the national broadcast, WSU hosts several small group discussions to allow students and community members a forum to express their reactions to the debate.

Members of the acclaimed WSU debate team will be available to media. Members will be scoring the debate and providing their impressions regarding the effectiveness of the candidates’ arguments.
