Election Day Study Break


The presidential election is a time for students to come together and eat burritos. That is, if you go to MIT. On Election Day, November 8, HKN threw a study break in the Course 6 Undergraduate lounge. Students feasted on burritos, tortilla chips, and guacamole from Anna’s Taqueria, all while they watched the election coverage by the edge of their seats. As the race tightened in key states like Virginia and Florida, you could hear students say “Yes, my vote counted!”, or “How much would it take to bribe an electoral voter?” Approximately 50 to 60 students came for the burritos, with an average of 25 sticking around to watch the coverage, hang out with friends, or work on psets. Those who stuck around for an hour were rewarded with delicious mini cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes.
