Political Science Club
The Political Science Club is made up of students of all political persuasions and majors on campus who are passionate about politics and public affairs. The student group promotes active citizenship and student engagement and learning about current events, and acts as an intermediary between the College Republicans and College Democrats. The club sponsors events such as watch parties for presidential debates and state of the union addresses, hosts speakers on political issues, invites politicians running for office to campus for candidate forums and debates, and helps with the political coverage of RMU’s Sentry Media. All undergraduates are welcome. The advisor for the Political Science Club is Dr. Justin DePlato.
Robert Morris University's Political Science Club held a debate between the candidates in the special election for Pennsylvania’s 37th State Senatorial District, on Wednesday, Oct. 28. Democrat Heather Arnet and Republican Guy Reschenthaler faced each other in the only debate of the campaign.
