PRESIDENT Obama!

Congratulations Barack Obama! We're all pretty excited.

The scene in Times Square, 2 blocks away from us. There was some confusion among the ranks at school as we tried to figure out a way to listen or watch the ceremony without stopping our classes. The sculpture room was able to get a radio station going while some of us ran down to the bar to watch Obama give his speech live. Carla was actually there in Washington, so we all got a first hand account when she came back on Wednesday.
