With the final presidential debate upon us, watch parties are popping up across our city. This new trend started around the first debate at places such as Buck Mulligan’s, and has become a popular way to tune in on the political proceedings. These parties offer a place for you to get your debate fix while being able to enjoy a bite to eat or some stimulating political conversation. The goal is to make it easy for those who wish to stay informed but may not have a way to watch at home. Each viewing get-together is hosted by different groups and organizations, some political based and some not at all. If you are looking for a place to tune in tomorrow, here are a few to help with your plans.
Tonight at 8pm, millions are estimated to be tuned into the first 2016 Presidential debate. Unsurprisingly, that includes college students, especially from UAB. During class discussions, Political Science Professor, A.K. Shauku, found out what his students really wanted to get out of this important debate.
