Enthusiastic Crowd Watches Obama Inauguration
The Lair in University of Pacific’s new DeRosa University Center (if it looks like a DUC . . .) was the place to be on the Pacific campus to watch the inauguration of President Obama. A full house of students, faculty, staff, and friends watched the 44th president take the oath of office and deliver his inaugural address. Faculty members Dave Frederickson, Keith Smith, and Brian Klunk offered their observations about the significance of the day and responded to questions from the audience. The event was hosted by Pacific’s Black Student Union, whose president, Political Science major Charles Bolton, opened the event.
