Students square off in Challenge

The second session of the Changing the World Student Speaker Challenge is on tap today in the Students' Union Building, Ballroom A.

Student speakers Trish Silk and Josh Pollard will face off at 12:15 p.m. as they look to advance to the next round of the challenge. The topic up for debate in this session is: Our Current Crisis: What Does Change Mean In Our World Today?

The Changing the World Student Speaker Challenge is an initiative of SACPA on Campus, which is a collaboration between the ULSU, LPIRG (Lethbridge Public Interest Research Group) and SACPA (Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs).

SACPA on Campus has a mandate to encourage thought and discourse outside of the classic lecture style to students and the university community at large. In keeping with this, SACPA on Campus has developed an interactive format that encourages discussion and open discourse with one another and with the presenter during events. This style gives students the chance to question and discuss what they have just learned and encourages a more open exchange of ideas.

Admission to this event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. Bring your friends and bring your critical thinking skills, as you will have an opportunity to challenge the speakers on their theses.

Session three of the challenge is scheduled for Tuesday, Mar. 10.
