USF goes on the campaign trail

Nineteen University of South Florida students (mostly political science majors on the St. Petersburg campus) descended on New Hampshire last week to experience and volunteer in the nation's first presidential primary on Tuesday. This is the second time professor and former White House staffer Judithanne Scourfield McLauchlan has taught the Road to the White House, which looks at the history of presidential campaigns and includes a 10-day internship in New Hampshire. Each student gets to choose which candidate they help, and they have done tasks that include waving signs, distributing literature and working phone banks. For several of the students it was the first time they saw snow, and several others were disappointed to learn that the restaurants in New Hampshire do not serve sweet tea. Most of them plan on volunteering for their candidates when they return to the Tampa Bay area.

Take a photographic journey with them.
