Society Collaborates With Various Student Organizations

Last night we were delighted to host members of the GWU Liberty Society in House for our fifth session of the Fall 2009 season to debate Resolved: Hate crime laws are contrary to the spirit of equality.

Kevin Duewel, Treasurer of the Liberty Society, delivered a paper speech on the proposition. He was accompanied by several members of his Society, including its President, Dennis Craig, and Communications Director, Chad Swarthout. As a Society we enjoy immensely working with fellow student organizations like the Liberty Society committed to the goals of fostering intellectual debate, honest dialogue, and deeper understanding on campus and in the community at large.  We hope to enjoy a broader working relationship with the Liberty Society in the future.

This past Monday, the Society was honored to host a debate on the future of U.S. energy policy between the College Democrats and College Republicans, which the President of the Society Eshawn Rawlley moderated. The debate was enjoyable and amicable but not without fierce, competitive rhetoric. The President dubbed the College Republicans the winner of the contest only by virtue of their invocation of The Simpsons to advance a point on the general safety of nuclear power technology.

Liberty Society, College Democrats, and College Republicans are just a few of many student organizations the Enosinian Society has and hopes to collaborate with this year and beyond.  For more information about the Liberty Society, e-mail Dennis Craig at The following is a listing of their upcoming events:
