The Campaign Trail

Cal U student Ellen Mari Boyle stands behind the CollegeDebate16 podum

Cal U represented at CollegeDebate16

Cal U student Ellen “Mari” Boyle is Pennsylvania’s student delegate at CollegeDebate16, a national, non-partisan initiative to empower young voters to identify issues and engage peers in the presidential election. 

On June 1-3, Boyle joined 150 delegates from all 50 states at Dominican University of California, where they attended workshops focused on promoting civil discourse, understanding responsible digital citizenry, and avoiding stereotypes and assumptions while focusing on the issues rather than party politics. 

The delegates also are planning social media strategies and campus discussions aimed at expanding conversations among young voters.
