UNG Politically Incorrect Club Draws Attention With Gainesville Events
The Politically Incorrect Club, located on the Gainesville campus, has been active hosting guest speakers and panel discussions about contemporary controversial political topics.
On October 5, 2015 the club hosted State Sen. Butch Miller. According to Dr. Douglas Young, professor of political science and club faculty advisor, Sen. Miller gave a most inspiring presentation to close to 60 students in the Nesbitt Building Ballroom.
More than 75 students participated in a spirited debate regarding immigration, amnesty, and moral obligations to various groups of people on October 21, 2015. The event attracted coverage in the Gainesville Times. Dr. Young said that debate was “spirited and informative and inspired many students in the audience to ask questions.”
The club hosted guest speaker Eric Clanton on November 9, 2015, in the Nesbitt Building’s ballroom. Clanton, who was NASA’s chief engineer for the space-shuttle orbiter program, presented a slide show and question-and-answer session for 79 attendees. Some students stayed for almost two hours asking questions.
