A massive ice-comet has hit the Pacific Ocean creating a GIANT TIDAL WAVE which wipes out our ENTIRE civilization… except for a small patch at the Hilltop area of the UConn campus.
The only survivors are members of USG’s Academic Affairs Committee, who were on a boating excursion through the Storrs Valley, as well as an elite group of UConn professors who were conducting rituals for their Secret Society at Hilltop.
The committee fits safely on their boat, with one seat left. They decide to have a debate to see which academic discipline would be the best addition to the committee in their attempt to rebuild civilization…”
Each professor will have five minutes to argue that their discipline is the one essential area of study that the new civilization will need to flourish. Each professor’s argument will be followed by questions from the audience, Academic Affairs Committee and fellow professors. Once each academic discipline has delivered their argument and fielded questions, a vote will be held by a panel of judges to determine the SOLE SURVIVOR!
Hosted by Kevin Sullivan, The Life Raft will also feature:
Jeremy Teitelbaum from CLAS

Mary Caravella from Business

Louise Simmons from Social Work
