In the 2016 Presidential election, the top candidates are Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump. In the eyes of the Tennessee State student body, it is very important to vote this election year.
Sophomore Chad Venson says,” If you don’t vote, you can’t complain about the laws that will be passed once someone is in office.”
After watching presidential debates this year, senior Denise McGarthy is appalled at the way the candidates represent our country as they compete for this position. “Donald Trump called Hilary Clinton a nasty individual. You just don’t say things like that, especially in a debate.” At Tennessee State University we are all concerned about our futures, for both ourselves and for those we will eventually provide and care for.
“This election will determine if this country will move towards socialism or fascism,” freshman Reed Crim comments.
In such a controversial election, it is clear that the students here are taking that choice seriously as all of them say they will voting by November 8th.
