The Oregon State University Admissions Blog is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of people, events and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but is rather intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items/events on campus and in the Corvallis community. Its purpose, if any, is solely to serve as a reminder to individuals to exercise their right to vote and the importance of it.

    Even though I’m not an American citizen, it makes me proud as a citizen of this planet to see one of the finest politicians win the title of the president. Obama has shown that anything is possible if you put in some effort.

  3. I’m very happy and proud for him, I hope everything has now changes.

    I watched President Elect Obama’s speech with my four week old daughter. It was very moving. I looked at the screen…then looked at my daughter. It felt like I was introducing her to a whole new status quo.

    I definitely felt proud to be an American and to be a father.

  5. I am very glad. Barack Obama will make a good job and there will be many changes in the future.

  6. Cool Videos says:

    I believe Obama is the best, that’s why I voted him.
