VERMILLION, S.D. — Immigration, climate change and teacher pay in South Dakota are among the topics to be argued next week in the annual debate between the University of South Dakota’s College Democrats and College Republicans.
The always-entertaining event is sponsored by the Political Science League, a student club that organizes trips, brings speakers to campus, hosts an evening film series and hosts other social and academic activities throughout the year. The debate starts at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 3, in Old Main’s Farber Hall.
Each team will have three debaters. Some of the topics include immigration, climate change, criminal justice reform, safe places / college campuses, legalization of marijuana, ISIS, refugee crisis, teacher pay in South Dakota and a few other questions that are for fun. The audience will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
