United States Election Monitoring

All day


Study Abroad students, alumni, faculty and staff at the Center gathered on Wednesday at 8am Beijing time to monitor incoming election returns from the United States.  Online real time reports from CNN, MSNBC and FoxNews were projected on screens in the event space as individuals monitored the returns on their own laptops.  At about 12:15pm, news organizations began calling Ohio for President Obama.  A few minutes later, a lunch arrived, courtesy of the Alumni Relations & Development department.
