Honors Scholars to Host Debate

On Thursday, November 8th, students from the Honors Program will host a public debate in Tomezsko classroom 101, during Common Hour (11:30 – 12:45). With the theme of “Celebrities, Politics, and the Media,” students will discuss issues raised in our common read, Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle, by Chris Hedges. Free pizza will be provided, and all are welcome to join us as we listen to some thoughtful perspectives on the question, “Has the media created a celebrity culture that dumbs down our political process, or does it get more students involved?”
