Describe a day on campus you'll never forget.

I'll never forget it when President Obama won on Election Night 2008. I was at an election party at the Institute of Politics watching the results come in on the big screen at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum, and after noshing on delicious political party-themed food all night, the results were announced that the man for whom so many of us at campaigned for had won! The craziness soon progressed to Mass Ave - the central street at Harvard - where hundreds of students gathered. We brought traffic to a standstill as we celebrated, cheered, sang, and hugged - this historic and inspiring president had walked these very streets just a few years ago! The electricity in the air was palpable. We all migrated back to our dorms to watch his speech, then streamed back into Harvard Yard where we celebrated some more (and sang! A video I took ended up on CNN here: on this night that I'll truly never forget.
