Cabrini Univer­sity se­nior Al­li­son (Al­lie) Stein of West Ch­ester was one of only 150 stu­dent del­e­gates in the na­tion se­lected to de­velop ques­tions for the up­com­ing pres­i­den­tial de­bates.

As a del­e­gate, Stein trav­eled to Cal­i­for­nia in June to meet with ex­perts and dis­cuss ways to en­gage her peers in the up­com­ing elec­tion. Dur­ing the sum­mer, Stein worked to de­ter­mine the is­sues that mat­ter most to fel­low mil­len­nial vot­ers to help de­velop ques­tions that re­flected those con­cerns.

On Sept. 7, Stein and fel­low del­e­gates re­turned to Cal­i­for­nia to vote on the top six ques­tions to be pre­sented to the pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates dur­ing the fall de­bates. Top is­sues in­cluded in­come inequal­ity and econ­omy; for­eign pol­icy, so­cial jus­tice/civil rights; im­mi­gra­tion; and ed­u­ca­tion.

Stein, a Com­mu­ni­ca­tion ma­jor, is a stu­dent-ath­lete on the women’s swim team and the as­sis­tant life­styles ed­i­tor for the Lo­quitur, Cabrini Univer­sity’s stu­dent news­pa­per.
