Civil Discourse Alive and Well on Kent State’s Campus

As we approach the 2020 presidential election, college campuses have become charged with energy from the differences throughout the student body. Channel 5 News asked Kent State College Republicans, “what’s it like being a Republican on a college campus right now?”

As one Kent State College Republican put it: “Believe it or not, it’s really not as bad as it seems.”

“We just really want people to have an opinion and be informed,” Kent State College Republican Rachel Walker, public relations major, told Channel 5 News.

Kent State's College Republicans said their most civilized debates are with what Channel 5 News calls "an unlikely group," the College Democrats.

“We'll do debates. They're always super nice, super civil, so we actually get along very well with them,” Walker said.
