2020 Mock Convention to prevail Feb. 21-22

It’s back! The Mock Presidential Nominating Convention, that is, a 136-yearold campus tradition, slated for February 21-22. Held once every four years and coinciding with presidential elections, Mock Convention is a lively affair involving mock protests, costumes, and absurd motions from the floor, such as the failed attempt by Texas to secede from the union in 2016. Ashley Biser, associate professor of politics and government and faculty director for the event, said Mock Convention is an example of “the kind of experiential learning that is a central part of the OWU Connection, and demonstrates OWU’s longstanding and innovative approach to practical politics.” Details: owu.edu/mockconvention.
