Obama to visit Lawrence
The White House announced Friday that President Barack Obama would be paying a visit to The University of Kansas, marking the fourth time a sitting U.S. president has visited the university, it was reported.
The visit will come two days after Obama presents the annual State of the Union Address in Washington, D.C. The address is scheduled for 8 p.m. Holton time on Tuesday.
Obama’s visit to the KU campus marks the first time the president has come to Kansas since 2011. He spoke at Osawatomie in December of that year, it was reported.
He will join presidents U.S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes and William Howard Taft in visiting KU while in office. Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton all visited KU after leaving office.
A time and location for Obama’s visit had not been announced at press time.
