President Barack Obama is reaching out to college students this week during campaign events on college campuses.
Tuesday, Obama will be in Ames at Iowa State University. He’ll focus on economic and education matters during his afternoon event on the university’s central campus. The campaign event is open to the public but a free ticket is required for admission.
Obama isn’t scheduled to speak until 1:10 p.m. Tuesday, but the gates for the event open at 10:30 a.m.
The president’s visit is expected to create headaches for those trying to get around Iowa State’s campus. Several of the roads bordering the central campus will be shut down and CyRide buses will have to be re-routed causing delays in service. Read the specifics on the road closures and other security measures being taken here.
Obama will move on to the University of Virginia in Charlottsville following the campaign stop in Ames.
