The university is hosting a pair of political events on Feb. 16 for students to prepare for the upcoming presidential primaries in South Carolina.

The Leadership and Service Center invites you stop by at 6 p.m. to chat with two political experts. Don't miss this opportunity to ask questions and find out why you should care about the outcome of the elections. Sort through the mysteries before you cast your vote. The event is in the Leadership and Service Center in Room 227 of the Russell House University Union.

Some of the nation’s top political journalists will participate in a panel discussion about presidential primary politics at 7:30 p.m. The panel, which will include Phillip Rucker of the Washington Post and Valerie Bauerlein of the Wall Street Journal, Ronald Brownstein of National Journal, and Craig Melvin, of NBC News, will meet in Room 231 of the Williams Brice Building at the corner of Greene and Pickens streets. Dean Charles Bierbauer of the College of Information and Communications will moderate.

The event is free and open to the public and will include a question and answer session with the journalists. It is sponsored by the university’s College of Arts and Sciences and its department of political science and the Walker Institute of International and Area Studies. The S.C. Republican presidential primary will be Feb. 20 and the S.C. Democratic primary will be Feb. 27.
