President Barack H. Obama

When then Senator Barack Obama stopped at the Penn State Dairy Barns during a campaign stop at Penn State this spring the outcome of the Presidential election was still uncertain.  At noon today Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States.

I joined other faculty, staff, and students in the student center of the Office of  International Programs.  They have a large monitor used in two-way video conferencing with Ag Sciences faculty and students who travel around the world.  Two of the students watching were international students from France.

In addition to being a site to view historic events like the inauguration students use this facility to stay in touch with students traveling abroad, utilize computer workstations, and work on projects. 

If you didn't have a chance to watch the inauguration you may want to read the Obama Inauguration Speech.
