The Internet Café and the Fishbowl were where clusters of students awaited the outcome of the presidential election on Tuesday night, Nov. 6.
President Barack Obama’s supporters cheered loudly while some Mitt Romney fans were upset at the results.
“Optimally, I would have liked to see Romney win, but (I am) not disheartened,” said John Richards, a junior studying biomedical chemistry. He added that he was not 100 percent for either candidate.
The election was neck and neck during the last several hours before polls closed, but Obama won with 303 electoral votes over Romney’s 206. (The race was still too close to call Wednesday in Florida.).
