“I’ve gotten over the disappointment of his election now so I’m just hoping that the country can overcome what he throws at us and that he will stop tweeting.” Julia Coombs, Senior

“Inauguration day was a beautiful day in history. A shift in political power. Call Trump what you want, but he understands economics, he understands relations, and most importantly he does not understand how to be a politician.” Andrew Fraiser Senior

“The transition was crazy, and people were burning flags for no reason.” Hailey Dale, Sophomore

“I think that it’s great that millions of people around the country came together for the Women’s March. I also think it’s great we’re all bonding and not letting anyone (Trump mainly) take our basic human rights.” Kalel Coleman, Sophomore
