Ashlee Sullivan: Third-year, College 8, History and education. “I’m very excited by the election results. I come from a very conservative area and this is the first time I’ve voted. This is the first time anyone in my family has ever voted as a Democrat. I want to see progress made on education though — I want to see money going to the schools.”

I expect to see an improvement in the economy over the next four years, but I also want Obama to focus on climate change, which is something he didn’t talk much about in the past.”

Chris Miles: Fourth-year, Merrill, mathematics and economics. “I don’t really feel much about the election results. I feel like we’re all a lot more similar in our mindsets than we realize but politics separates us. I’m also kind of unhappy that Prop. 30 passed, because I think now there will be no real incentive to address the inefficiency of our university system. I’d like to see efficiency problems solved over the next four years.”

On the other hand I’m ecstatic that Obama won, because otherwise Romney would get all the credit when the things Obama worked so hard for over the last four years start working. I think things are looking up over the next four years."
