Pres. Obama paid a visit to Reynolds Coliseum to promote his American Jobs Act legislation. Tickets were pretty hard to come by as you can imagine. N.C. State reportedly had about 2,000 student tickets available. Students - including myself - lined up early to get a ticket to the event. Some even camped out from Monday night to Tuesday morning to get tickets. I didn't camp out but I got there a good 2 hours before the ticket distribution began and, let me tell you, the line was crazy. In fact, they had 2 lines going and each one stretched as far as you could see.
The speech in Reynolds was great. I was sitting in the upper section but only 5 rows up so I had a great view of Pres. Obama. I still can't believe I got the opportunity to see him in person! It's a memory I will always have for the rest of my life!
P.S. The photo on the right side of this post was taken by me during the speech.
