Rupp Shares Inauguration Experience with Students

Dr. Robert Rupp (Political Science) was invited by the Wesleyan chapter of RESULTS to speak to a group of students in the Center for Community Engagement about his experience at the inauguration of 44th President Barack Obama. Granted with a press pass, Rupp was able to experience the event on Capitol Hill amongst 1.8 million people – the whole population of West Virginia. Students and staff engaged with Rupp in a discussion about the various aspects surrounding the historical event: the symbolism within the President’s speech, the long campaign trail, and the years which lie ahead.
