With a country divided, students unite.

For the recent presidential election, students were invited to watch the results live in Basel Lounge. Meier RA, Brandon Payne ’17, hosted the viewing until the wee hours of the morning. Students walking by Meier’s Basel Lounge were flagged down by Payne and asked “What do elections mean to you?”.

The students who joined Payne were passionate about the election, cheering when news channel CNN projected states in favor of their candidate. It seemed that students were there for more than just the free food. Throughout the night, Payne updated a chalkboard of who was winning each state for Facebook members to watch along with these students.

Personally, I was glad to see so many students gathering to watch such an important election in America’s history. It shows that Elmira College students truly know how a vote matters and how the election affects everyone.

As a college community who might be split on who should have won the election, we can unite to watch the results without judgement, which is the most powerful vote America can have.
