Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States, returns to the University of Colorado Boulder this Sunday, September 2nd.
According to Boulder’s Daily Camera, this is only the third time a sitting U.S. President has visited the CU Boulder campus. Aside from President Obama’s visit in April of 2012, President Dwight Eisenhower visited Boulder in 1954 to dedicate a new lab at the then named National Bureau of Standards, now known as the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Because of the magnitude of this visit, Norlin Library will be closed on September 2nd. The Norlin Commons, accessible through the east plaza entrance of Norlin, will be open from 10:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. but there will be no access to the main building.
A stage for the President will be constructed on the east end of the CU Quad, near the Norlin entrance, with additional area reserved for members of the press. President Obama will speak sometime between 11 a.m and 1 p.m. Visitor should note that there will be no access to the west side of Norlin Library starting early morning Sunday through about 3 p.m.
Tickets will be required to attend the President’s speech.
