After the rumors began spreading across campus earlier this week, the race was on across campus to get the coveted yet rare entrance passes that were distributed to students and faculty via their schools. SMPA received a small number of tickets, and the lucky students who attended the address were: Carrie Winans, Rachel Kottler, Sarah Margolis, Bridgett Lynn, and Saira Thadani. Professor Carole Bell and school director Frank Sesno were also in attendance.
Last night, official word began filtering out that classes normally held in the lower level would have to be rescheduled, and that people wouldn't be allowed to enter or exit while the President was in the building.
We'll soon post personal essays from some of SMPA's attendees about the experience.
