    This is correct as far as I can tell. I have also heard rumors of some building surrounding Central Campus (Beardshear, Curtiss, maybe a few more like Catt, Lebaron, Gerdin) being closed for that time period on Tuesday.

    That's great shut down academic facilities because his Eminence wants to have a photo op on campus...

    Where did you hear this? I heard they would be shutting down the entrances facing Central Campus, but that the buildings would still be open through the other entrances from some admission's staff.

    I do! It's funny how there's a great concern about education in the political sector, yet they need to cancel classes so an elected official can make a campaign speech.....I find that highly ironic!

    Re: President Obama to speak on Central Campus

    Central Campus is probably the safest place to hold a speech in terms of eliminating any threats to the President's safety. All you gotta do is put secret service on top of every building and inside the campanile and they can see everything.

    Re: President Obama to speak on Central Campus

    My professor cancelled my class with a quiz that may have overlapped! I'm excited! Got my ticket yesterday!

    And seriously people? The POTUS is coming and you're worried about a couple classes being cancelled? (Which may not even been the case) I personally was planning on skipping my classes anyway and I know I'm not the only one.

    POTUS will be on campus and you are ******** about a class being disrupted. Call this a real life civics lesson.

    Don't you know that college is all about sitting in lectures and reading textbooks? How dare you suggest that students have a chance to experience something new.
