College campuses are an untapped resource of educated
As campaigns gear more toward reaching young voters, politicians
and their supporters are coming to college campuses to speak about
their campaigns and encourage people to vote.
Tonight, presidential candidate John Kerry’s wife, Teresa
Heinz-Kerry, will be speak at CSU after a visit Thursday from
Kerry’s stepson, Andre Heinz.
We encourage students and faculty to attend these speeches and
listen to what is said. Regardless of your political views, anyone
can learn from being open-minded and hearing different viewpoints
on the issues.
Resources are available to students on campus, as well. In
addition to a new polling center in the Lory Student Center and the
opportunity to register to vote on campus, students can become
involved in partisan student organizations.
It is your choice to agree or disagree with the individual
stand-points of visiting speakers, but knowing about the issues
will help you make an informed decision at the polls in
