Boca Raton, Florida's Lynn University will be the site of the third presidential debate in 2012. The Commission on Presidential Debates picked the University of Denver to host the first debate, and Hofstra University to host the second debate.
The vice presidential debate will be at Centre College in Danville, Ky.
While the Commission has been extremely successful at hosting debates, the candidates have not always been cooperative.
In 1996, Bill Clinton and Bob Dole were unable to agree on having a third debate, so it was scrapped at the last minute.
Lynn University is a small, private university with fewer than 2,5oo undergraduate students. Many of the students are from outside the United States.
Lynn’s vision is to be recognized as one of the most innovative, international, and individualized small universities in America. Lynn University will capitalize on its youth, location, and close student and faculty bonds to become a forerunner institution, a different kind of learning center, an independent, innovative 21st Century university that is unusually devoted to preparing young persons for America’s and the world’s future.
