A group of about 30 Saint Augustine's University students traveled to Washington, D.C., Monday, Jan. 21, to watch President Barack Obama be sworn into office for his second term.
Among the group was Student Government Association President John Newman, who called the inauguration a "very patriotic event."
"It was a different experience because I got to stand and witness history. It was my first time at an inauguration," Newman said. "It became even more special when I found out they had Lincoln's bible and Dr. Martin Luther King's bible (which were used as Obama took the oath of office)."
