If you’re a student or faculty member at U.C. Berkeley, then you’re invited to see Bill Clinton on February 24th, 2010. The subject will be:
Admission is free for students, but faculty and staff will have to fork over $45 each. (Can you believe it? It would be cheaper for them to spend a night at Gump Station in the South Pacific.)
The rush for free tickets starts at 7:00 AM, February 18th, 2010. See you there!
Sadly, despite the words of touchy, touchy CityBright Zennie62, students, faculty and/or staff won’t be able to help you, a non-UC Berkelian, get a seat. Actually, it will be tough for the students themselves to get a ticket online.
But if you do get in, don’t be surprised if Bill shows up late, just like the last time he came to the bay area to do a big public address. Bill was late late late. Even the Mayor of San Francisco was reduced to gesticulations after being repeatedly lied to by Bill’s people about Bill’s arrival time back in 2006. Gavin’s coping strategy was to keep pointing at his watch to note the lateness of the hour. Like this:
Oh, here’s Bill:
The Blum Center for Developing Economies, University of California, Berkeley is pleased to announce that President Bill Clinton will speak to UC Berkeley students, staff, and faculty about Global Citizenship: Turning Good Intentions into Positive Action at 3:30 p.m. February 24 at UC Berkeley’s Zellerbach Auditorium. Doors will open at 3 p.m.
Tickets for this event can be obtained online only.
