Flashback: Twenty years of SGA debates
The 1993 Student Government Association presidential debate was in full swing by Feb. 25, 1993, as The Daily Cougar featured a photo of the then-presidential candidates, Cipriano Romero, Jason Fuller and Shane Patrick Boyle.
Years later, The Daily Cougar remains active with SGA, hosting the debate for the 51st administration Thursday in the Kiva Room of Farish Hall. “We” Party candidate Naeem Abdullah, House of Red candidate Andrea Segovia, Cougar Pawlitics candidate Shane Smith and REDvolution candidate Charles Haston debated their views on how to solve campus crime, parking issues and lack of student involvement. Technology has caught up to the debates, as students, faculty and staff tweeted #DailyCougarSGAdebate to send their questions in to the candidates.
This year’s presidential election will be held at polling locations across campus from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 25 to 27.
