Recent upturn in campus political activity a relief

The expression, “Better late than never,” can now be applied to TCU’s political organizations. After being practically dormant for the past two months, TCU College Republicans and TCU Democrats are taking the initiative to step up and take part in this year’s presidential election.

The Republican party rallied together Monday to kick off early voting on campus, and the Democratic party will have a Professor Dunk-a-thon at 3 p.m. today at the Campus Commons.

It’s fantastic that campus organizations are making their voices heard and using fun, creative ways to do so. Using schools and universities as early voting stations has also been a great way to get students, faculty and staff involved.

Everybody should know by now that this year’s election is one of the most important ones in history. Younger audiences have been heavily targeted by both the Democrats and the GOP, encouraging them to get involved and vote. Events like these at TCU clearly show people are listening and not taking the elections lightly.

One day, this monumental point in history will be published in every history textbook for generations to come, and it is the students at this university and other institutions of higher education across the country that can attest to the happenings and ongoings, in which children and grandchildren are writing their research papers on.
