It was a full studio for this edition of State of State on WKNC. M.C.’s first guest was N.C. State junior Christy Booth and kids from the Brentwood Boys and Girls Club. Christy is an art program coordinator for the club. M.C. also chatted with representatives from the Carolina RailHawks, a Cary-based professional soccer organization that works with the Brentwood Boys and Girls Club.
On this edition of State of State M.C. talks with N.C. State graduate student Matt Robbins, chairman of the Traditions Commission, about Finish the Bell Tower, a student-initiated movement to raise money for a 54-bell carillon for the campus’s famous bell tower.
To those of you who joined us tonight, thanks for listening. For those of you who didn’t, here’s your second opportunity to make up your mind (polls open in less than 4 hours!) For all of you, enjoy.
Special thanks to WolfTV.
Some things never change—namely, the perennial littering of propaganda and promises of “change” that inundate campus when Student Government elections roll around. This year, however, Student Media will be providing the opportunity for students and community members to hear the candidates state their claim one last time, a few hours before polls open here.
Courtesy of John Coggin, organizer of the event:
“This debate will be the first of its kind, bringing all the candidates for the campus-wide offices together to discuss their ideas in a forum open to all students at NC State. The debate will also be broadcast live on WOLF-TV, WKNC, and streaming on the Internet for those students who cannot make it to the Campus Cinema. This will be the first and last time many students get to see more of you than your signs (!), so we highly encourage everyone to participate.
Candidates for the following offices are invited to participate in the debate:
- Student Body President
- Student Senate President
- Student Body Treasurer
- Student Chief Justice
- Student Centers President
Candidates for all other offices are warmly invited to attend, and we will recognize all present candidates during the event.”
Currently, all eyes are on the candidates for Student Body President:
State of State will be doing its part by airing the entire debate live. So be sure to tune in on Monday night from 6-8 at 88.1 FM or online at wknc.org to hear what next year’s student leaders have to say for themselves.
