Hillary Clinton to speak at Rec Hall on Sunday

April 18, 2008

In a last-minute flurry of campaign activity before Tuesday's primary election, the presidential candidates and their representatives are making several stops throughout Pennsylvania over the next few days, including stops at several Penn State campuses.

The most recent addition to the schedule is a visit by Sen. Hillary Clinton to Rec Hall on Penn State's University Park campus at 8 p.m. Sunday, April 20. The doors will open at 6 p.m.

In preparation for the visit, the main gym in Rec Hall will be closed all day Sunday, although the south gym will remain open throughout the day.

For security reasons, no bags, no umbrellas and no signs of any kind will be permitted to be taken in to Rec Hall. The only entrance to the event will be the front doors by the Curtin-Burrowes intersection, where everyone must pass through a U.S. Secret Service metal detector. To expidite entry, please do not carry or wear any metal objects that wil activate the metal detectors.

Limited parking is available in the Nittany Parking Deck and in the Red A lot, which is the large parking lot across North Atherton Street from Rec Hall. Red D lot next to Rec Hall will be closed.

The following streets will be closed to all vehicular traffic except CATA buses on Sunday: Curtin Road between North Atherton Street and Allen Road, and Burrowes Road between Pollock Road and Curtin Road.

Over the past six weeks, Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and Ron Paul all have made stops to Penn State campuses including University Park, Brandywine, Fayette, Erie and Greater Allegheny. The visits are part of Penn State's effort to expose students to the 2008 presidential campaign, part of the University's open-door policy to host campaign stops during this primary season.
