Chelsea Clinton visits Bucknell noon Thursday
LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Joining a growing list of presidential campaign representatives visiting Bucknell University this election season, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton will speak at noon Thursday, April 3, in the lobby of the Weis Center for the Performing Arts.
Chelsea Clinton will talk briefly and then take questions about the campaign of her mother, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The event, which is sponsored by Bucknell's College Democrats, is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. and entrance will be first-come, first-served. Audio of the talk will be simulcast in the Weis Center patio area; audio and video will be simulcast in Trout Auditorium.
Bucknell has already been visited by campaign representatives for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. In March, actors Dulé Hill and Zachary Quinto held a question-and-answer session on Obama's campaign in Trout Auditorium.
This Saturday, April 5, the lead singer for rock group Third Eye Blind, Stephan Jenkins, is scheduled to talk about Obama at 3:30 p.m., also in Trout. The Obama events have been sponsored by College Democrats and Students for Barack Obama.
In February, Bucknell President Brian C. Mitchell invited all of the presidential candidates from all parties to speak at the University. Bucknell does not endorse any candidate or party but encourages engagement in the democratic process and critical thinking and analysis of the candidates and the issues.
