The Cazenovia College Debate Society will take on the issue of hydraulic fracturing at the 14th annual "Great Debate" at Cazenovia College on Wednesday, April 30, at 7 p.m. in McDonald Lecture Hall, Eckel Hall (37 Lincklaen Street). The debate, in which affirmative and opposition teams will analyze the pros and cons of this environmental topic, is free and open to the public. It will also be live streamed at https://new.livestream.com/cazenoviacollege.
