Darton holds an unusual debate

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Darton College held an unusual debate this afternoon that gave faculty members the chance to persuade students that their academic discipline is the most vital.     

It's called the Life Raft debate.  The tongue-in-cheek premise is there's a major disaster and only room in a life raft to save one person on campus. Who should it be?     

Organizers say it's a fun way for faculty to showcase their departments to students who haven't chosen a major.

"And as you can see we had the students packing out the house and they were participating on facebook, twitter, we were streaming it live so we had a great time today, "said Victoria Butler, Communication Professor, Darton State College.    

Darton's EMS program won this afternoons debate.
