Students spilled out of bars, houses and apartment buildings in celebration of Sen. Barack Obama's victory over Sen. John McCain this evening.

Groups of students moved along Bancroft Way, Telegraph Avenue and Durant Avenue, and rallied on Sproul Plaza, shouting cheers of "USA, USA" and "Obama". At one point, a group of several hundred that had assembled on Bancroft near Wells Fargo broke into a rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner."
