DebateWatch held at Baker Center – Oct. 3, 2012

More than 150 students, faculty and community members watched the first Presidential Debate on Oct. 3 in the Toyota Auditorium at the Baker Center.  For 30 minutes before and 45 minutes after, the debate,  the audience was linked in a videoconference with UT Martin, Univ. of Memphis,  and E. TN State University.  Each of the campuses hosted DebateWatch and polled their audiences for reactions and opinions before and after the debate.  These results were shared live and provided for varied opinions from west to east, across the state.  At the end of the evening, two Baker Ambassador students, Lisa Dicker and Hannah Bailey, were interviewed by WBIR’s John Becker.  You can see that clip here.
