Political fair for grad students

Carnegie Mellon University's Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) will hold a political resource fair and reception at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 3 in Rangos Hall in the University Center. The event is for graduate students (with free tickets) and invited guests only.

Several members of Pittsburgh City Council, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and State Senate have been invited to attend. Carnegie Mellon Students for Barack Obama, the Carnegie Mellon Republican Club, the Pittsburgh Urban Magnet Project and The Pennsylvania League of Young Voters will also participate.

The evening will begin with the reception and an information fair for graduate students and guests. Later in the evening, The Pennsylvania League of Young Voters and members of Pittsburgh City Council will sponsor a game of political trivia. In addition to voter registration, the event will engage Carnegie Mellon students with regional elected officials and open up a dialogue as the November election approaches.

This is a great opportunity for U.S. and non-U.S. citizens to learn more about the election and process. For details, click to http://www.cmu.edu/news/archive/2008/September/sept26_gsapoliticalfair.shtml.
