a Presidential day!

Today is an exciting day here on the FAU campus!

President Obama will be here to give an economic address! And even more exciting? I won a ticket to attend !!!
FAU held a ticket lottery for the campus community (the general public was not included)...faculty, staff and students only. That was still THOUSANDS of people vying for tickets, and I feel so lucky to have won mine!

Campus will be hectic today with traffic and parking issues, but it'll be worth it. President Obama is only the second sitting US President to visit FAU (the first was President Johnson). So this event is historic .. and I'm excited to be part of it!

The White House will stream the event LIVE online starting at 2:45 PM (EST), on FAU's homepage. Look for me in the crowd! (Sal isn't attending -- he has to teach then, bummer! -- classes have not been canceled today)
