"Students react to inauguration day on, off campus"

January 24, 2017

"The club is a nonpartisan political forum and its regular body meetings often include discussion of different views, he said. Basile said the members and board members of the club are a mix of Republicans, Democrats and Independents.
“We encourage debate,” Basile said. “We definitely try to get a candid sense of where their political ideology might be because it can be a little threatening for both sides.” - The Temple News
