St. Norbert College prepares students for Trump rally

Local News

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump will hold a campaign rally at the Walter Theatre on the campus of St. Norbert College in De Pere Wednesday morning at ten a.m.

The theatre holds 750 people and student Bobbi Schlenvogt is looking forward to Donald Trump’s visit, she hopes to ask him a question.

“I’m actually very excited I’ve never had the opportunity to see a candidate before,” said Schlenvogt. “I think this is actually a once in a lifetime chance.”

St. Norbert President, Tom Kunkel sent a message out to students promoting a free exchange of ideas, encouraging students to be civil and respect each others opinions.

Bobbi Schlenvogt appreciated the message and looks forward to forming her own opinions and that really is the point that St. Norbert is attempting to drive home to their students.

“We want to expose our students to things they agree with and things that they don’t agree with so they can make an informed decision as they move through life,” said Rev. Jay Fostner the Vice President for Mission and Student Affairs. 

St. Norbert College does not endorse and political candidate or party, they had both Hillary Clinton and Michele Obama back on campus back in 2008.

The goal is to teach students about the democratic process with freedom of expression and debate within their student body.

After Donald Trump finishes up in De Pere he will make his way to the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton for another rally at two p.m.
