One of the many presidential debate watch parties last evening was held at the University of Southern Indiana with a large  presence of students and faculty. 

Even though the primaries are over the presence of Bernie Sanders loomed large over this gathering.

In the past, the majority of millennials avidly supported Sanders and the sting of his defeat is causing some, like Cody McCormick, to swing their votes to a third party. 

Last year, baby boomers were outnumbered by a new generation, the millennials. Who, according to the Business Journal, now make up to 38% of the U.S. workforce.

The so-called “quarter life crisis” is an online catch phrase spawned by hashtags , Buzzfeed articles, books and even a few economic studies.

The term is used to describe the uncertain predicament that many newly graduated (or about-to-graduate) millennials find themselves in.
