I enjoyed reading the recap on Sabato's lecture last night, but I just wanted to point out that although there may have an under-representation of University students in the lecture room, many of my friends arrived before 6:30 and could not find a seat. Some who arrived a few minutes late were not allowed to enter, and declined the option of sitting in the viewing room. I don't think this necessarily indicates a lack of interest by University students. Many probably did not anticipate this to be a community-wide event, and therefore did not plan accordingly.
