The days leading up to the debate have been filled with fun memories and historic moments. All of these memories and moments have been captured by media outlets with representatives all over campus. From local media to national media.
Three big names on campus are CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. Each one started broadcasting live on Oct. 4 at various times in the morning and will carry through the day. They have been on the look out for the positive energy that the students have to offer.
Among the crowd of students standing on Wheeler Mall in front of CNN, junior Sydney Hughes was front and center waiting for her chance to be on television.
“I think all of the media outlets here on campus is just a wonderful platform for Longwood,” stated Hughes, ” All eyes are on us, so I think it’s a great opportunity for us.”
Along with current students here on campus, Rachel Faughnan, a Longwood Alumna, was standing in front of CNN taking in the experience.
“It’s been really interesting seeing everyone come together and form a tight-nit community and being very supportive of the campus emerging in this political debate,” said Faughnan.
