Politics Society

Politics Society,is built to enhance the students experience, not only just focusing on domestic politics but rather the global political landscape itself.  Students debate issues that are controversial in nature; from Trump America, to the economic crisis in venezuela, to the uprising in Hong Kong. Politics society not only discusses these issues but offers potential solutions, though the rigorous cross-examination, that as a society pride ourselves with.The society provides a platform for students to become well-rounded global citizens; allowing them to discuss and debate politics with all sorts of individuals, no matter there background. We are all affected by politics, so to be able to understand and empathize; in essence providing an invisible medium of communication that transcends borders itself. This is our society's ultimate goal, to bring the world to our socials.
