The James Madison College Reception Day: August 26th

Starting JMCC's SECOND semester on campus with a BANG!  At The James Madison College Reception Day,  JMCC was able to speak with incoming freshmen into the James Madison College as they looked to join new student groups on campus!  What a turnout!  JMCC was able to recruit over 40 new members within 2 hours of tabling at the event!  Even the freshmen had heard of our great success, and whether they were Liberal, Libertarian, or Conservative, they wanted to join our ranks and enter into the civil debates that would soon ensue!

Pizza and Politics! September 12th

In JMCC's second edition of Pizza and Politics, we had our largest bipartisan debate yet! What a show of support in the promotion of bipartisanship as everyone was able to debate the Legalization of Marijuana and the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh!  Intense discussions, but civil and well informed. Free pizza was provided... of course.  What a fantastic way to kick off the new semester!

Independents Day Townhall! October 3rd

 What an amazing and informative event! In a two-party driven system of governance, we hardly get to hear from Independent candidates running for office! Shut out by media, and over-spent by the major parties, their views are not often heard...

So yet again, The James Madison College Conservatives have broken down the political divide and invited these candidates to our Independent forum tonight! Another opportunity to showcase the ability to engage in civil discourse with those you may not wholeheartedly agree with. What an amazing discussion!

Cookies and Conversation! October 18th

In our first ever installment of "Cookies and Conversation", JMCC once again hosted a fantastic opportunity for students to engage others in a bipartisan and civil fashion on topics like "education for all" and "Proposals 1+2"! Continuing our work as stewards of bipartisanship, it was once again fun to enjoy the company of so many diverse students at JMC and from across MSU, enabling us to hold another great event tonight and engage in a very substantive debate over issues we all are passionate about!

MSU College Democrats + JMCC Discourse Night! October 23rd

Teaming up with the MSU College Democrats, the James Madison College Conservatives were able to take part in the Campus Election Engagement Project  for a VERY substantive debate about Education and Immigration policy. JMCC has always been about promoting civil discourse, and this was just one more way we were able to engage in educational discussions on campus as to learn from those who view these issues differently! We think everyone learned and grew from that discussion... GO USA!
