Every week during the fall and spring semesters, members of the UNG community including students and faculty and staff members meet to discuss pressing political issues during the weekly Crossfire debate on the Dahlonega campus. Sponsored by the Political Science Student Association (PSSA) under the direction of faculty advisor Carl D. Cavalli, the Crossfire debates began in 1994 as a way to encourage civil political debates on hot-button issues. The Crossfires remained popular during the 2014‑2015 academic year, covering topics like the Middle East, taxes, Georgia politics, and the United States’ place in the world.

The PSSA has put together a compelling schedule for the spring semester with debates ranging from gun control to terrorism and global warming.

The lineup for the current semester is available on the PSSA’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/UNGPSSA .

The PSSA Voters Guide is here! This guide was prepared specifically for UNG students, based on a survey of important issues. You can access an electronic copy of the guide booklet here: https://www.facebook.com/download/1688825628024656/
