The 10 Most Electric Campuses to Be on this Election Year

Helene Schmidt has been in touch to reminds us about this published article below.

The 2012 elections will be here before you know it and on some college campuses, political fervor is already getting ramped up and ready.
The elections in 2008 brought out the third-highest showing of student voters of all time, nearly 22 million, and campaigners are hoping to motivate students to take advantage of their right to vote again this year. No matter what political party you're rooting for, the 2012 elections are bound to be intense, and there may be few better places for students to watch the debate, share their support, and get out the vote than on these politically-charged campuses.
Read on to find out where students are most amped up for the elections, getting into activism, and showing their political savvy as much as they can.

Georgetown University


Georgetown is widely considered to be one of the most (if not the most) political campuses in the U.S., so it will undoubtedly be an interesting place come this fall. In late 2011, election fever began revving up on Georgetown's campus, starting with an event in November that introduced students to the candidates and let them meet with the directors of the Republican and Democratic National Committees.
Students could ask questions, learn more about the election process, and join in a lively discussion about the upcoming elections and the candidates that might be on the ballot. Due to its proximity to D.C., students at Georgetown can expect things to get pretty heated in the coming months, with student reps from all political parties campaigning for votes on campus.
