There’s still time to buy your ticket to the Nov. 25 Faculty Smackdown Debate—the popular annual United Way FUNdraiser at the Burnaby campus that promises lots of laughs as 12 professors debate ridiculous topics for a chance to win the Gnome-it-all Award.

This year’s panel of debaters, nominated by 400 students for their chuckle appeal and verbosity, includes English professor Paul “Bam Bam” Budra, business professor Kathleen “By the Book” Burke, and chemistry professor Jeff “Got My Ion You” Warren.

Buy your ticket online.

The debates kick off promptly at 12:30 on Nov. 25 in the Leslie and Gordon Diamond Family Auditorium (formerly the SFU Theatre), Burnaby campus.

All proceeds go to support SFU’s United Way campaign to support agencies helping vulnerable local children and seniors living in poverty.
