FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE OF 2012 TO BE HELD IN NEWMAN ARCHITECTS-DESIGNED WOLD PERFORMING ARTS CENTER AT LYNN UNIVERSITY

Newman Architects is very pleased to announce that the Lynn University Wold Performing Arts Center in Boca Raton, Florida, has been selected as the site of the final 2012 Presidential Debate by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), to be held on October 22, 2012.

Lynn University was one of 12 sites nationwide, and the only institution in Florida, under consideration to host one of three presidential, or one vice presidential debates produced by the CPD.

“Being an undergraduate or graduate student here on our campus when such an historic event takes place will provide a singular and unparalleled educational experience,” Lynn University President, Kevin M. Ross, said.

The site had already hosted a Congressional District 22 debate in October 2010 between then incumbent Ron Klein and Allen West. Lynn University submitted its application to the Commission in January 2011 and hosted staff from the Commission on Presidential Debates over the summer for an on-site survey of the proposed debate venue and campus.
