Posted September 13, 2011
President Barack Obama will speak at North Carolina State University in Raleigh at 12:55 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2011.
The N.C. State speech is free and open to the public. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the Vaughn Towers ticket window at Carter-Finley Stadium, 4600 Trinity Road, starting at noon Tuesday. Tickets are limited to two per person.
N.C. State students can get tickets – limit of one per person – at the Brickyard on campus, starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
Day of the event
The public may begin entering Reynolds Coliseum, 2411 Dunn Ave., at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday through the main entrance at Dunn Street, which is on the north side of building.
Attendees should not bring bags and should limit personal items. No signs or banners permitted. Everyone will go through airport-like security. Due to lack of space, parking will not be allowed on campus for the event.
Attendees should be prepared for traffic delays. Road closures and high volumes of traffic on campus will slow down time entering and exiting main campus. Organizers highly suggested that attendees carpool or use public transportation on the day of the event to create less congestion.
