This election has several issues that particularly concern students, including rising student loan debt, college costs, new voter I.D. laws, energy policy, and whether they will be able to find a job after graduation.

Join The Current, the campus news source, for News at Noon: “The Election Issues That Matter Most To Students” on Wednesday, October 10, at 12:15 p.m. in the Student Government Association chambers, on the third floor of the millennium Student Center.

There will be free pizza and soda, followed by discussion of election issues that matter to students. Terry Jones, chair and professor of political science and fellow in Public Policy Research Center, and Chad Hankinson, associate teaching professor in the Pierre Laclede Honors College, will briefly introduce the topic, followed by a student-centered discussion. The event is free and open to all.

“News at Noon” is a monthly forum for faculty and student discussions about current events, co-sponsored by The Current and the New York Times, with support from the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Student Life at UMSL. Join friends and faculty members each month this semester to consider how current events are presented in the media.
