A Point of Pride: Hofstra University is 1 of Only 2 Schools to Host Consecutive Presidential Debates (2008, 2012)

As many members of our community are aware, Hofstra was given the rare opportunity to host not only one, but two presidential debates, consecutively! On October 15th, 2008 Hofstra hosted their first Presidential debate between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain.

I bring up these debates now because Hofstra has in fact applied to host what would be their third consecutive Presidential debate in 2016! While the debate would be quite a while from now, it is quite exciting to know that Hofstra could be one of the ONLY universities to host three consecutive presidential debates! As a student here on Hofstra’s campus I put my name into the lottery to hopefully be chosen as a lucky ticket holder, however I was not one of the lucky random winners. Myself, and I am sure many other hopeful Hofstra students, are hoping for the 2016 debate to be on our campus and for more students to be chosen to attend as a guest! When I applied to be in attendance for the 2012 debate, I believe only 100 students were chosen at random to attend the debate. However, this event typically does provide students with at least one great opportunity. Students are allowed to volunteer to help out with necessary preparations for the day. This gives students a behind the scenes look at what it takes to host such a major national event and also provides some volunteer experience that can be put on a resume.

The debate focused on domestic policy and the economy. The second Presidential debate hosted by Hofstra was the following debate on October 16th, 2012 was between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. This debate like the first at Hofstra primarily focused on domestic policy, but also touched on foreign affairs.

  30. If you want to buy Avon online then you need to visit the official Avon website. It's easy but there are a few steps you need to take so that you can make the most out of your time and money. In this article I will give you the most important step of how to buy Avon online.Shop sales Just as the online world continues to grow, many retail stores like Avon offer you a multitude of ways of shopping both online and offline. The most basic way is to visit the store in person and then purchase their merchandise. If you have the time and patience, you could also order a few items and pay for it at the store and when you get home, they will deliver it to your door for you. This is the easiest and cheapest way to shop for your cosmetics. However, many people don't have the time or patience to drive to a store, pick up a few items and then wait until the next day to deliver them to the doorstep. You should avoid stores like that if you want to save a lot of money and time, since they really only make money from you by taking a percentage of what you pay for their products.
