The annual debate between candidates for student body president will be held Thursday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m., in the Student Union Rotunda. The event, scheduled to run from 6:30 to 8 p.m., is open to all UNC Charlotte students and is hosted by Student Niner Media.

During the debate, Venson Nunnaley, Omar Ramirez and Steven Serio, the three candidates for student body president, will each respond to questions regarding the responsibilities of the Student Government Association and issues important to students.

Last year’s debate had around two dozen students in attendance, and those responsible for the debate expect a larger turn out due to the new location.

Niner Media will be accepted audience submitted questions leading up to and during the debate. Students are encouraged to tweet questions they’d like answered to @Niner_Times or @unccmedia using #SGADebate.

For those unable to attend the event, follow @Niner_Times on Twitter for live tweets during the debate.
