This event was done with the Business Club after the President of the Business Club came to our chapter with the idea of the debate. The two Canada Clubs decided that we would have two professors, Terzakis and Roscelli, in the debate. The main idea was to educate students on the pro's and con's of globalization and trade while explaining the effect trade can have on the countries involved. The event proved to be an extremely popular debate to attend. We had over 100 students and faculty members attend with standing room only shortly after the debate began. After the professors presented their views the room was open to questions and the numbers of students with questions was much greater than we thought. Thanks to the great involvement of the classroom the debate ended up lasting much longer than expected, but was well worth the time. This event was able to help the chapter reach out to Canada students and teach them about our scholarship topic.
