The mood at the watch party on the Ivy Tech Community College Gary Campus for the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States is quieter than past inauguration parties, so says Campus President Marlon Mitchell.
Some students like Laiaja Donson "looked like" they were attending the watch party but they were just lounging in the students' common area. Donson was waiting for her Psychology class to start.
Freshman Mike Ritter just happened to walk-up on the inauguration watch party. He thought it would be a comfortable place to lounge. Ritter said the outcome of the Trump administration could go either way.
Student Antonio Taylor, who is set to graduate this year with a degree in Business Administration, says he came in to watch the inauguration because he believes it's important to stay informed regardless of how you feel about new incoming administration.
