Students and voting

If UIS is any indication, then I'd say college students have the political fever back. Our own students are very excited about this election. They passed a resolution reminding faculty of their interest in doing election work tomorrow -- so take it easy on them if they ask to miss a class. They have organized a bus to take students to the polls. And some are back in their home towns, burning energy for their favorite candidates. Equally important is that they have strong opinions about this election. They're eager to express themselves and they're out there working. As they should be.

I am equally amazed at how involved and active students have been throughout this election cycle. Yesterday, the SGA drove around 60 students to the polls, most of whom were first-time voters. I'm really glad to see that the UIS community recognizes how much students care about public affairs and the world around them.
