The Volante will host free Election Night Watch Party Nov. 4

VERMILLION, S.D. -- The Volante has announced that it will host an Election Night Watch Party for USD students, faculty and staff. The event will be open to the university community and held Tuesday, November 4, from 6 p.m to Midnight in the Al Neuharth Media Center Conference Room on the USD campus.

With the university not having a Student Center, The Volante would like to offer a place for students to gather with friends and fellow students to watch the election coverage in high definition on the evening of Nov. 4.

"Election night is a fun evening, especially for meeting with friends and seeing how the voting turns out," Michelle Rydell, The Volante Editor-in-Chief, said. "In years past, students could gather at the CSC and watch the news on big screens there, but that’s not the case right now. And with this being such a big election, it made sense for us to try and fill a void." The Volante will provide free food and refreshments.

There will be three screens to watch the election coverage. Two screens will be large high definition flat panel televisions provided by Dakota PC Warehouse.
