Student celebrate Obama's win at 38th and Walnut streets.

Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2008 - 12:54 a.m.

Penn - along with the rest of the nation - watched the cable news networks with bated breath this evening.

And when the outcome of the presidential election was announced at about 11 p.m., Penn students - who voted overwhelmingly for Obama - took the streets in celebration. Hundreds have marched downtown and are converged on City Hall.

Over 90 percent of Penn students registered on campus showed up to vote today, according to AJ Shiera, executive board member of Penn Leads the Vote. Just over 84 percent of students registered in the 14 divisions on and near campus voted for Senator Barack Obama.
