Students, faculty, staff and town residents who have yet to get their tickets for First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech on campus Tuesday will have another chance today.
Ticket distribution for Michelle Obama’s speech at Carmichael Arena will continue today from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Pit.
Doors for the speech open at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, but the exact time of the speech will not be revealed for security purposes, said Lauren Hovis, vice president of UNC Young Democrats.
Organizing for America, the grassroots arm of the re-election effort of President Barack Obama, and the UNC Young Democrats are co-sponsoring the event, Hovis said.
Avery Keese, a political science major who received a ticket, said the lines were much shorter to get tickets for Michelle Obama’s speech during the weekend than for the president’s speech in April.
