After some doubts as of early February when the fate of the debate was still in the air due to the RNC temporarily breaking ties with NBC, the news circulated around campus that indeed the debate would come to town and take over the campus for a few days.

Media will be broadcasting from the coveted UH Cullen Lawn along with several other election-related events slated for around campus prior to and after the debate.Some events scheduled include voter registration drives, a student watch party, and panel discussions on topics such as-immigration, gun policy and the presidential primary process. The debate itself will take place from the Moores Opera House, inside of the UH Moores School of Music.

Even though the presidential candidates have been narrowed down as of this writing- “The field has been noted for its diversity, and has even been called the most diverse presidential field in American history. This included two Latinos (Cruz and Rubio), a woman (Carly Fiorina), an Indian-American (Bobby Jindal), and an African-American (Carson); Cruz, Jindal, Rubio, Rick Santorum, and Trump are the sons of immigrants,” states Wikipedia.
