The Eagle vs. The Turkey April Fools' Day Debate

RIPPAC April Fools' Day Debate

Which is more American the Eagle or the Turkey?

 

On April 1, 2019, students, faculty, staff and the community were invited to attend the Inaugural April Fools' Day Debate to settle a question that has been at the forefront of no one's mind for generations.

Debating the question for Team Eagle was Rowan University Provost, Dr. James Newell with Gabrielle Longo, Rowan '20. For Team Turkey, Dr. Lee Talley, Dean of the Bantivoglio Honors Concentration in the Honors College along with Sean O'Malley, Rowan '20.

Going into the debate the crowd favorite was the Eagle, but with their work cut out for them, Dr. Talley and Sean O'Malley snatched away that easy victory.

Crowd reactions forced Dr. Dworkin to declare Team Turkey the winner of this year's debate. As you can see from the photos below, all in attendance had great fun!
