CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- From Republicans to Democrats, College of Charleston students cheered on their candidates hungry for returns.

"We're continuing to see more people come in. We've run out of food twice. We're ordering more food. I think this shows how involved students are in the voting process today," student organizer Candice Shaw said.

A group of international exchange students also came to the party to get a glimpse of American democracy.

"It's very important. The U.S. is such an important power in the world. You have to learn about it," Benjamin Tuffigo said.

Shaw said she organized the party and voted for Obama.

"It will help with student loan rates. As a college student that's something I'm really concerned about. I love everything he says about women having the right to choose," she said.

But Dan Mackin said he voted for Romney. Though his candidate didn't win, he knew Wednesday would be back to normal.

"We go back to being friends on campus and in a lot of ways, forget our partisan alignment," he said.
