The Great Debate
A staff vs student debate was held at the Brisbane Campus (McAuley at Banyo) last week, with speakers battling over the topic 'The global economic crisis is good for universities, especially Australian Catholic University'.
Staff members Elizabeth Fisher, Peter Blakey and Jennifer Grant competed against students Daniel Gullotta, Selina Gurgacz and William Waugh, with the students triumphing following an audience vote.
Campus Life Coordinator, Eric Robinson, said "It was a big win for the students as they lost last year! I guess they wanted to restore a bit of pride."
The Great Debate was presented by Campus Life and The McAuley Student Association.
