A lot of first-time delegates are in Charlotte this week for the Democratic Convention.
One of them is missing part of his first semester at Lafayette College in Easton for the experience.
You'll find Ed O'Brien, 18, blogging, tweeting and Skyping with college Democrats back on the Lafayette College campus in Easton this week.
"The campus culture politically is very important to me and I want to see, whatever direction it goes in, I want to see kids active," said O'Brien.
He hopes his one-minute clips on Lafayette's website will help inspire them.
You can also catch his video blog on a new YouTube channel.
"And it's that point in time where it's just long enough so that you won't get bored," he said.
At 18, he knows young voters.
He is New Jersey's youngest delegate but it's a position he's been prepping for since getting a call from the state party chair in August of 2011.
He calls the delegate process Obama University.
"Because they had to accept and deny people. It's just like the whole college process that I had to go through at the same time," O'Brien said.
Last week at the RNC, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie seemed to throw in the towel for N.J. voters saying it's a given the state will go blue, but O'Brien says he'll continue to fight for votes across the Garden State.
"It's going to take the same amount of effort in N.J. as it is in Iowa. We have to keep that mindset that every state is a swing state even if it's Texas, even if it's Massachusetts, even if it's Iowa."
He says as a student the conventions can look a little boring on TV so he hopes to bring his excitement for what's happening in Charlotte and his experience this week back to students in Pennsylvania.
