The Texas Tech University Student Government Association teamed up with Mortar Board members to host a presidential debate watch party Sunday night at Alamo Drafthouse.  

“We just want to do our part as two student organizations to help the student body be informed,” said Hannah Cleveland, vice president of membership for Mortar Board.

The leaders of these organizations passed out United States Constitution booklets and American flags to attendants as they entered the theater and waited for the debate to begin at 8:00.

“I know a lot of people have been excited to come to this,” said Nicole Lundberg, the communications director of Mortar Board. “This is a fun way to celebrate this exciting time for our country.”

The theater was filled with diversity as the students oftentimes audibly responded to both candidates’ comments.

“I think it will be good to get a better perspective just on what they think about the issues in their platforms and their plans for the future,” Lundberg said.

These organizations have no collective plans for the third presidential debate next weekend, but will try to make sure all their members and fellow students are registered to vote.

“I would just ask everyone to engage with each other, promote a spirit of learning and just turn out to vote on November 8th,” said Arjun Ogale, the president of Mortar Board.
