WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Sporting events, award shows and finales all have watch parties, but Tuesday was all about election results watch parties.

The Brian Lamb School of Communications co-hosted a watch party to show all election results live.

Purdue's Honor College residence hall was packed with students, faculty and political experts.

Live coverage of the event was available with Purdue students interviewing historians and political scientists.

One of Purdue's history professors says election watch parties are a brilliant way to connect both sides of politics.

"When Americans seem very divided about politics and I think it's great that they can bring people together to talk about candidates, issues and foster that civic dialogue that's so needed in our county," said Kathryn Brownell.
