Student Group Hosts Big Name Speakers

The Indiana University College Republicans hosted three large names in Indiana politics for their spring call-out meeting. Dr. Tony Bennett, state superintendent of public instruction; Mr. Richard Mourdock, state treasurer; and Mr. Don Bates Jr., former U.S. Senate candidate, were on hand to speak to students about the importance of being involved in the various levels of politics.

Dr. Bennett spoke on the importance of reforming school education; Mr. Mourdock offered some encouraging comments on being passionate about politics; and Mr. Bates spoke about living your passion. Students learned about opportunities to get involved in different levels of politics and enjoyed having dinner with the speakers.

Clubs across campus are having their semester call-outs, and it's never too late to get involved! See you at the next meeting!
