With more than 350 people attending on the Facebook event, JCs was full to the brim as it hosted the US Election All Nighter for the American Studies Society and Politics and International Relations Society. Supporters for both candidates were present but Hillary Clinton’s name was heard chanted as the results came in.
American Studies society president Emily Ellis said:
‘It was amazing to see so many people turn up to watch the US election results. While the result might not have been a total success it is safe to say that the event was. Both the American Studies Society and the Politics and International Relations society want to thank everyone who came, and please don’t blame us for the result!’
The American studies society are in the middle of a busy period as they recover from the election and begin their festive celebrations, starting with their Thanksgiving dinner.
