If dystopia is career politicians talking directly into the ears of their constituents for hours on end, then we’re living it.
As the April 19 New York state primary elections approach, 2016 presidential candidates are making their way through the state to rally support. Some Ithaca College students are going the distance to see the presidential hopefuls speak in person.
“I think this 2016 election has probably been one of the most interesting in at least the past 100 years,” sophomore Kyle Stewart said. “Definitely in my short lifetime of 20 years.”
Nine journalism students traveled to South Carolina with James Rada, associate professor of journalism, and Anthony Adornato, assistant professor of journalism, to spend the days before the primary reporting on politics for a collaboration with NBC.
Ithaca locals and students took to the streets Tuesday opposite the office of Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y., on East Martin Luther King, Jr. Street to voice their opposition to a government shutdown.
