Hofstra University senior Cyndi Robuck held up three signs to support President Obama at the student center on Tuesday. One sign read, "I <3 Obama."

"Since I'm graduating, I asked myself, 'Why not?' and so I came out of my dorm to be a part of this," said Robuck, 21, of Denver, Colo. "I wish that I could go to the debate, but I'll be there in spirit. This is great for the university's student body to think of issues that affect their future."
