Lynn University offers more translators than other debate host sites

80+ countries are represented in Lynn student body

BOCA RATON, Fla. - More than 160 news organizations from around the world are requesting credentials for the upcoming Presidential debate at Lynn University.

"We are anticipating a massive influx of international media over the next several days, from all over the world," says Joshua Glanzer, Director of Public Relations at Lynn University.

Newspapers from France and Germany, TV crews from South America and Asia are expected to attend. Dozens of languages will converge on the Boca Raton campus. It turns out, that's Lynn's forte.

Students like Gwendoline Darguste are a hot commodity. She's from Haiti and speaks four language. She's can't wait to volunteer as a translator.

" As soon as they announced it, I had to get in. Not a lot of people will get this change," says Darguste.

University staff say the intense international interest likely stems from the debate topic, foreign policy. Not to mention the fact Florida is a battleground state, and it will likely be the last opportunity for the candidates to come face-to-face in front of the world.
