This week we had a great Super Tuesday spread (check it out at http://picturetufts.tuftsdaily.com/2016/03/01/tufts-voting-preferences/) and shot some excting events on campus!
Here’s just a couple of the photos featured from our Voting Preferences project from Evan Sayles.
Mollie Beek (left), For Bernie Sanders: “I really like his platform and I also think that although Hillary has experience and is intelligent, I think shes phony.” Maya Blackstone (right), for Bernie Sanders: “I really like his personality and what he stands for. I think Hillary goes way too back-and-forth.”
Mary O’Kane (LA’16), for Ted Cruz: “Ted Cruz is the candidate who best represents conservative, right-wing values. He also is the one who would uphold the Constitution and what this country was originally founded on.”
Our beloved Director of the Women’s Center started work at another school this week, but we got some great portraits of her before she left.
