On Tuesday, Nov. 8 Simmons students gathered on the residence campus in Bartol Hall to watch the election returns come in. The Election Night Extravaganza was hosted by the Simmons Student Government Association (SGA), in partnership with the Political Science Liaison and the Office of Residence Life.

Students in Bartol enjoyed their dinner and the election event, which began at 8 p.m. in addition to special Late Nite hours, which lasted from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m.
