Researchers To Measure Rhodes Students′ Reactions To Presidential Debates
Publication Date: 10/1/2012
Rhodes is one of the campuses nationwide where researchers will ask young voters for their reactions to campaign messages in the upcoming Presidential debates.
Students are being asked to bring their smart devices and laptops to Burrow Lobby and watch the first Presidential debate live on Wednesday, Oct. 3. The event begins at 7 p.m. with students receiving assistance setting up a Twitter account to post their reactions followed by a pre-debate survey, the debate watch and a post-debate survey.
Students who attend the entire event can earn extra credit/service credit for participation. Students also will have opportunities to participate in future Presidential debates on Oct. 11, 16, 22. Those interested in participating in these events should contact Political Science Professor Amy Jasperson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (210) 663-1278.
