The Many Faces of Bernie Sanders

Right now, Georgetown students are lining up for the chance to hear possible democratic nominee, Bernie Sanders, speak at Gaston at 2pm. Bernie will be speaking about democratic socialism in the United States.

While most Georgetown students know who Bernie is, 4E wants to provide you with even more background information. You know, just in case you aren’t in the know.

This is Vermont senator, Bernie Sanders:

In 1991, Sanders was elected into the House of Representatives:

Sometimes Bernie is very pensive, like when he listened to testimony by Acting Secretary of Veterans Affairs Sloan D. Gibson in 2014:

Sometimes he invokes FDR in his speeches, like in this picture:

Georgetown Day 2013, as Told by Twitter

as  told by twitter

What just happened.

After much anticipation for the last day of Friday classes and some worrying about the weather, the student body successfully came out this Friday to celebrate one of the best annual traditions in Washington: Georgetown Day.

It’s one thing to recap the events of the day — from stellar a capella performances to break dancing in Red Square — but the only way to give this year’s beautifully sunny Georgetown Day justice is to tell its story through the tweets of fellow Hoyas.

1. The rumble of excitement began in the night, like waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.

2. Center for Student Programs Director Erika Cohen Derr shared some advice for the ensuing festivities. Not to mention the all-caps touch.

3. And even Otto Porter was excited.

10. Remember, though, some have to go class on Friday, because this is a school and that’s what people do when at school.

11. Then again, maybe it’s best to stay out of the classroom sometimes, given the circumstances.

12. Then there were those who had some harsh realizations.

13. Paired with sheer awe at the events going on all over campus.

14. Then there was some suspicious tomfoolery.

15. Sometimes there are consequences for party rocking.

16. But some had enough energy to keep the momentum going.
