UNLV is an exception as public university host
The two previous Presidential debates were held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., and at Washington University in St. Louis, both private universities. Debates at public schools in the West are infrequent. Before the UNLV-hosted event, the last large. public Western university to stage a debate was Arizona State University, which hosted Sen. John Kerry and President George W. Bush on Oct. 13, 2004. The Univesity of Denver, a private school, hosted the Oct. 3, 2012, debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Other schools that have hosted recent debates include: Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., and Centre College in Danville, Ky. in 2012. In 2008. it was the University of Missippi in Oxford, Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., and Hofstra again. In 2004, Case Western Reserve in Cleveland and Washington University in St. Louis again, along with Arizona State University.
