Inauguration 2009

Many folks took a few moments for a shared experience of watching our new President take the oath of office today. Students, staff and faculty alike crowded in the Books ‘n Bytes Cafe as well as the main hall to watch on the large screens as Barack Obama and Joe Biden transitioned into their leadership positions.

If you missed it, you can find the complete transcript from ABC News.

You can also view a rebroadcast of the Inauguration on CNN throughout the day or see it in clips on their website.

The New York Times has a transcript of the inaugural poem, recited by Elizabeth Alexander.
