It took about 12 total hours to give out all the tickets to today’s events featuring President Barack Obama.
As of 3:40 p.m. Monday, all tickets for both Obama’s speech on student loans and the 2 p.m. taping of NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” were claimed.
Though there were barely any lines Monday for tickets to the speech, it still took almost the full six hours of distribution time for tickets to go.
Laura Hayes Morgan, director of University events, confirmed that all tickets for the speech were given out. It will take place at Carmichael Arena, which seats 8,010, and the taping will be at Memorial Hall, which seats 1,434.
Austin Gilmore, president of UNC’s Young Democrats, said more tickets were given than there were seats available. There will be overflow to a live broadcast in Woollen Gym.
