In an impromptu response to the news of President-Elect Barack Obama's victory, hundreds of students gathered outside of the President's House on election night. They spoke with President James Wright, and then headed to the Green for a rally. Earlier that day, a record number of Dartmouth students-more than 2,200-turned out to vote. First-time voter Sarah Bourne '12 from Lancaster, Pa., said, "I found it really exciting to participate in this historic election that is important for our generation and our nation."
