CoAS Raft Debate

Thursday, May 3, 2018

4:30 PM-6:00 PM

A group of CoAS professors are stranded on a desert island. With only one chance for escape (a single-person life raft), each “islander” must argue for why they — specifically, their discipline — is most deserving of survival.


Come clap, heckle and cheer for your favorite faculty member or discipline. Only one can survive and YOU decide their fate!

PS: Our faculty members won’t be the only ones winning — all student attendees will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win prizes. And of course, there will be free food (because what island party would be complete without a feast?).
