News broadcast features Randolph rhetoric class about presidential debate

This week's debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney provided plenteous material for analysis by Randolph College students in Jennifer Gauthier's rhetoric class.

Every presidential election year, Gauthier, a communication studies professor, focuses her rhetoric class on the presidential race and the debates. Students watch the debates and then discuss the communication methods in class.

This class was featured in a recent news broadcast on WSET, a local ABC television affiliate. Two students, Tyler Gilchrist '14 and Alyssa DeNisco '14, were interviewed for the segment.
