CHICAGO (CBS) — Northwestern University was preparing for a visit Thursday afternoon by President Barack Obama, who will be the first sitting president to visit the Evanston campus in 60 years.
You won’t find a Northwestern student who does not know about the visit. Students speaking with WBBM said the University has been barraging students for a week with e-mails regarding his speech on the economy, who is allowed at Cahn Auditorium for the president’s address, other places where students can watch a live video feed, and what is blocked off on and near campus for security reasons.
A disappointed Kandace Webb said she will be watching the feed.
“I know we get live viewings of him, but I think we ought to be able to see him in person, too,” the freshman said.
