GUSA Presidential Debate Drinking Game 2014


GUSAHeader4We here at The Hoya neglected to post our annual drinking game for the GUSA Vice Presidential Debate yesterday. Fortunately, we quickly have a second chance because fate Ethan Chess scheduled the GUSA Presidential Debate for tonight.

The main event is set for 8 p.m. in the Leavey Program Room and @TheHoya (and a coterie of senior GUSA wash-ups) will once again be live-tweeting the debate.

If you think we missed a good opportunity for a new rule, suggest it in the comments! And, as always, enjoy your GUSA elections responsibly.

For 21+ students only

Drink once for:

*Every time a question or candidate uses the word(s): 

  • Access to benefits
  • Advocacy
  • Balanced tickets
  • Catholic/Jesuit heritage/identity
  • Diversity
  • Dr. Jeanne Lord
  • Dr. Todd Olson
  • GUSA insider/outsider
  • Innovation
  • One Georgetown, One Campus
  • Sustainability
  • Transparency
  • What’s A Hoya?

*Every time a candidate mentions his or her running mate

*Every time a candidate works in a campaign slogan into an answer

*Every tweet from former GUSA Vice President Greg Laverriere (COL ’12) or former GUSA Chief of Staff Jake Sticka (COL ’13)


Drink twice for:

*Every losing candidate from previous years who attends the debate

*Every reference the candidates or moderator makes to House of Cards, The West Wing or Scandal


Take a shot for:

*Everyone at the debate who isn’t on a campaign staff or a member of campus media (don’t worry, this won’t be too many)

*Every question that Nate Tisa or Adam Ramadan submits during the audience questions portion

*Every mention of the Georgetown mobile app, the potential to build a new website or leveraging new technology (we’re looking at you Spencer Walsh!)

*Every mention of a candidate’s cross-endorsement 

*If the still-ubiquitous former GUSA Vice President Vail Kohnert-Yount (SFS ’13) shows up


Finish your drink:

*If a candidate leaves the stage for a bathroom break

*If the Stewards are mentioned (but be secretive about it)
