SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

President Obama will visit the University of Iowa on Friday for a grass-roots campaign event. Campaign officials announced Tuesday that Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Jill Biden will hold the event on the Jessup Hall lawn.

The event is open to the public, but a ticket is required for admission. The event will start at 5:20 p.m. Friday, and tickets are available through the IMU Box Office or local Obama for America offices, and doors will open at 1 p.m. Tickets are available starting at 9 a.m. today.

UI spokesman Tom Moore could not confirm as of Tuesday evening whether any university buildings would be closed before or during the event. Details are forthcoming, he said.

This will be the president’s second visit to the UI this year. Obama visited the university on April 25 and spoke to a crowd of more than 5,000 community members in the Field House.
