Students at Rose State College, like most across the country, are anxiously awaiting the results of the November 8 election. They will gather together that evening to see the results of local and national elections alongside Matt Dukes, Mayor of Midwest City and other local elected officials at the on-campus apartment clubhouse.
Over 100 students and staff came together for the primary watch party which was held this past spring. “We’re looking at even more participation next week,” said Alyssa Loveless, Director of Residence Life. Those who attend can play pool, ping pong, and foosball while watching the results pour in on three televisions tuned to different stations. Afraid you might get hungry? That’s covered too. Pizza, snacks, and drinks are on the house as well as coffee too keep you going past dark.
The event is co-hosted by the Village@Rose State staff and the Social Science division. Rose State political science (and frequent media expert) Professor James Davenport, will be there for commentary on the results as they pour in and to answer your questions about the political climate in our country and how the results will affect our nation and our state. Davenport said, “Students will benefit by seeing democracy in action and hearing insights from elected officials who have a great deal of knowledge on this process.”
