Tommy Oswalt is an undergraduate senior at Vanderbilt in the College of Arts and Sciences, double majoring in Communication Studies & Psychology, with a minor in Spanish. As the 2020 U.S. presidential election draws nearer and nearer, Tommy has found it increasingly urgent for everyone—campaign organizers and everyday voters alike—to rethink the ways in which candidates communicate their presidential style and identity. In an attempt to tackle the large issue of political disengagement and promote a reassessment of politics through a Communication Studies lens, Tommy has created an online game that allows users to connect with the 2020 election through presidential campaign music. This game, titled “2020 Tune-In,” invites users to select songs they enjoy and, from there, receive results that match them to the presidential campaign playlist that most closely aligns with their music preferences.
