Student passion fades for Occidental College’s most famous alum: A group of Occidental students who analyzed the first year of President Obama’s performance on foreign affairs issued a mostly favorable report, concluding that Obama had been “consistent overall” in living up to his campaign promises. However, the President, who attended the Eagle Rock college about 20 years ago, might not be too thrilled about the response those same students gave to a question posed to them by professor Derek Shearer. Shearer, according to a college press release, asked the students if they were “still ‘in love’ with Obama, as many college students seemed to be during the 2008 campaign.” The reply:

“‘No,’ they said, more ‘in like,’” Shearer reported. “They admire and respect him, but also question his performance in office.”
