Obama’s First Year in Office

It’s been just over one year since Barack Obama was elected President of the United States. Youth, and college students in particular, played a huge part in his campaign and election, so here at HC, we thought it deserved checking in on a year later!

That’s why we’ve brought you two Obama “follow-up” articles in our World section: one on students’ opinions of his first year in office, and one on how the surge of political enthusiasm that Obama’s campaign was met with by college students has played out a year later.

What are your thoughts on President Obama’s first year in office? What kind of impact do you think he has left on youth participation in politics? Let us know by leaving comments here or on the articles!
