Watch the Presidential Election Results Live at Baruch, Nov. 4
New York, NY - Oct. 21, 2008 - Students and faculty members who’d like to watch the presidential election returns on November 4th can now do so at Baruch College. The College's Newman Library and Subotnick Center will host a election night media viewing "open house" in the Subotnick Center's conference room on the ground floor of the Information and Technology Building, 151 E. 25th Street. The Subotnick Center was also the scene of four well-attended live presidential debate viewings sponsored by the School of Public Affairs over the past few weeks.
Prof. Jerry Bornstein will preside over the evening, which will feature large-screen TV reportage from 7 pm to midnight from major channels. Light refreshments will be available and members of the Baruch community are invited to drop by before, after, or between classes.
As a precursor to the elections, the Newman Library has launched "Red States/Blue States", an interactive exhibition on the American electoral map. Details about the Newman Library’s online exhibit can be found at http://newman.baruch.cuny.edu/pres_election_08map/.
