The Peaslee Debate Society hosted their annual ‘Bathtub Debate’ on February 22, which has one professor from each of the three academic divisions (Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities) to debate on why their division should be preserved. This year, a hypothetical Donald Trump victory has resulted in the slashing of budgets, forcing Swarthmore to decide only one division to keep. The Daily Gazette live-tweeted the debate.
