Illinois State to host election watch party

American Democracy Project debate watch party

Students attend an American Democracy Project debate watch party at Illinois State.

Illinois State’s Student Government Association (SGA), WZND 103.3 and American Democracy Project (ADP) will host Election Night Live, a watch party for the 2012 election returns, in Schroeder 130 on Tuesday, November 6, from 7-11 p.m.

ISU’s SGA will provide free pizza and beverages. 103.3 WZND will be doing live call-ins and interviews with ADP and SGA members from Schroeder 130. WZND will be broadcasting election night coverage live on 103.3 from 7:30-11 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

The Student Government Association has three pillars to govern and represent the student body by in 2012-13: Outreach, School Spirit, and Tradition. These empower the SGA to become civically engaged and to ensure students are given the opportunity on their own campus with fellow students to be informed of the future governance of their country that they reside in. As in 2008, the Student Government Association, felt it was essential to give the students an opportunity to come together and to celebrate the most significant day in our constantly evolving democracy.

The American Democracy Project is dedicated to educating students on responsible civic and political engagement. Illinois State was selected along with 10 other campuses nationwide as model political engagement institutions by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) in 2006 and received the national Program of Excellence Award for Political Engagement in 2011.
