Lynn, Hofstra alum enjoying second presidential debate at alma materby Andrew Abramson | October 18th, 2012
BOCA RATON — Jonathan Weitz, a 28-year-old social storyteller, wasn’t able to sign up in time to participate in this week’s debate at his alma mater, Hofstra University.
Luckily for Weitz, next week’s final presidential debate is at Boca Raton’s Lynn University, where Weitz attended graduate school.
Weitz, who is living in New York and runs weitzstudios.com, paid his own way to Boca to assist Lynn’s marketing and communications department in video production for the big debate weekend.
“It’s just an incredible opportunity to be on campus,” Weitz said. “So much is happening.”
Lynn is being thrust into the national spotlight which is thrilling for alums like Weitz.
While he might be a rare graduate of two universities hosting debates in the same election cycle, Weitz said he considers himself a Lynn graduate before Hofstra.
“I have more of a relationship with Lynn,” Weitz said. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in history, something of this scale. All eyes will be on Lynn.”
