First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama visited Hampton University Nov. 2, four days before her husband was re-elected to the office of the President of the United States for a second term. Inside a packed Holland Hall, FLOTUS encouraged students to make sure their friends were registered to vote, and gave several reasons why they should vote for her husband, Barack Obama, the first African-American to hold the post.

"When you talk to someone who's trying to decide who to vote for, tell them what Barack has done for our economy, for healthcare and education," she said.
