Mock Convention 2016


Gray Chapel February 5-6, 2016

This event brings together students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members to debate a party platform and candidate for whichever political party is currently out of power. The 2012 Republican Mock Convention nominated former Governor Mitt Romney and political enthusiast Stephen Colbert for Present and Vice President, respectively. Join us for another Republican Convention, in which we will take on the roles of Republican Party members and debate the potential future of the Party.
