"The Senator will be in attendance to talk about issues around student loan debt," said Joanna Warren '16, president of the Centenary College Democrats. "Currently, student loan debt is the second largest debt class behind mortgages but has failed to garner much attention in the national spotlight. This event is one of three events in the state that Senator Landrieu will be conducting to try to raise awareness of the issue."

Centenary College's Marjorie Lyons Playhouse will be the host site for a televised U.S. Senate Debate on Tuesday, October 14, at 7 p.m. Senator Mary Landrieu, 6th District Congressman Bill Cassidy, and Rob Maness have all accepted invitations to take part in the debate. Other sponsors of the event include Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB), the Council for A Better Louisiana (CABL), the AARP, and the Shreveport Chamber of Commerce. Attendance at the debate is by invitation only.

The October 3 event will give students unable to attend the U.S. Senate Debate the opportunity to hear from and ask questions to Senator Landrieu.
