As part of Monmouth College’s election engagement series, a mock presidential debate will be held on Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the Morgan Room in Poling Hall. Featuring representatives for the Republican, Democratic and Libertarian parties, the debate will follow some of the key issues in the upcoming election.
On Oct. 30, Jeremy Pool, one of Monmouth’s ACM-Mellon Post-Doc Fellows, will present a lecture in honor of Halloween and Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos at 7 p.m. in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room in Stockdale Center. Titled “Sweet and Dark: Sugar and Chocolate in the Making of the Modern World,” the talk is sponsored by the history department. It is free and open to the public, and “chocolate goodies” will be available to sample.
