Celebrating the Inauguration in the Robeson Center

A packed Robeson Center on Tuesday:

I didn't know the Multipurpose Room could fit so many people! It was great seeing the overflow into the downstairs lounge and cafeteria as well. (anyone get photos?) Students, faculty and staff all gathered to watch the ceremony.

There was food (really quite good) as well as patriotic cupcakes, which I didn't try because I had already loaded up on the spicy mini-burritos - but they certainly looked very festive.

Obama took the oath of office to a standing ovation and much photo-taking.

I've enjoyed reading all your comments on my previous post - keep them coming in, and send along photos/videos whether you were on campus or not.

A note about comments: Yes, I am moderating them, so keep them clean and on topic, please. This means NO profanity.
