To help the Oakland University community prepare for the Republican Presidential Candidate Debate on campus, the comprehensive Debate at Oakland website provides an array of important information on campus events, involvement opportunities, parking, logistical considerations and more.
Separate web pages are designed to guide the media, friends and visitors, and the campus community through the weeks and days leading up to the debate, which will take place from 8-10 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9. Presented by the Michigan Republican Party and CNBC, the event will be broadcast on CNBC and streamed live on CNBC.com.
The campus community should prepare for a variety of changes to parking, traffic conditions and facility hours starting Monday, Nov. 7 and continuing through Thursday, Nov. 10. Campus administrators anticipate having thousands of additional people on campus for events and activities during this period.
It is also important to note that as debate planning is finalized, changes may be made to logistical arrangements outlined on the Debate at Oakland website. The campus community and visitors are encouraged to log onto to the site regularly to get updates on planning efforts.
The debate represents a unique opportunity for Oakland to showcase its distinctive educational programs and to demonstrate its reputation for excellence. At the same time, the event offers a plethora of student- and community-friendly experiences, offering many opportunities to take part in the democratic process.
"We're pleased to host a Republican national debate as a critical part of the broader democratic process that will determine who will be elected president in the 2012 election," said OU President Gary Russi.
