“Overall, it was fun. Although running zombie-Reagan was ridiculous.” – Cole Oberli, ’13
“I really enjoyed it myself. It’s true it wasn’t as serious as it could have been. We were having fun with it, and I was amused by the results.” – Cassie Smith, ’12
“I liked that it showed how the national nominating conventions work. There were more serious moments, but it was nice that it was broken up by moments of spontaneity. I expected to be bored to tears.” – Bethany Miller, ’14
“I thought it should be a learning experience, a way to show another perspective. I think it’s great that people are expressing opinions, this just wasn’t the place for it.” – Ariel Koiman, ’14
“Well, it felt like there were two sides, the serious side and the silly. The first night dragged on a long time, and it was around then that the first Zombie acts were pushed.
