May 27: Reunions Debate on Climate Policy

Welcome back to Nassau Hall, Whig-Clio alumni!! Along with the Class of 1976, in celebration of their 40th Reunion, Whig-Clio is excited to host an alumni-student debate on the motion: This House believes the only way to address climate change in the world is through co-leadership with the U.S. and China. Tucker Jones ’16 will speak in favor of the motion and Evan Draim ’16 will speak against it and each will be paired with two alumni experts. Thank you to Josh Libresco, Class of 1976, for working with us to make such a wonderful event happen!

We hope to see you in the Whig Senate Chamber Friday afternoon for a good debate and of course some pounding and hissing. There will also be a cookies platter from Olives!

Thursday 2/11: Consider Yourself (Trigger) Warned

Consider Yourself (Trigger) Warned: A Conversation with Ramesh Ponnuru

Along with the American Enterprise Institute on Campus and the Princeton Open Campus Coalition, Whig-Clio was pleased to host Princeton / Whig-Clio alum and National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru for a conversation about political correctness on college campuses. The event took place in the Senate Chamber on February 11th and dinner was served for all attendees, thanks to the generosity of AEI.

Ramesh Ponnuru is a senior editor at National Review (and also a contributor for Time and the Washington Post). He has written extensively about political correctness- especially regarding its effect on institutions of higher learning. Ramesh is a major face in American politics, a good friend of the American Enterprise Institute, and an outstanding speaker. It was a great honor to welcome him back to Old Nassau for this event. Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2136233276515648/.
