The campus has been going through security transformations all week. The entire area is blocked off and shut down including a portion of I25. More than 5,000 people are expected to attend DebateFest. This is a free outdoor event which will air the debate on giant screens. The event will also feature live music, family activities, tabling for organizations and a food truck rally.
“We’ve been told that since it is the first debate of the series, involving a sitting president and taking place at such a critical time for world and national affairs,” observes Chancellor Robert Coombe, “the debate at the University of Denver may be one of the highest-rated television programs in all of 2012, approaching the numbers of the Super Bowl.”
You can watch the debate live on C-SPAN's website.
