President Barack Obama will serve as Hampton University’s commencement speaker on May 9, 2010. At today’s Town Hall meeting students, administrative staff, and Dr. Harvey (Hampton’s president) came together to have an open forum with students to hear any questions, comments, and concerns.
During this meeting, Dr. Harvey announced the fabulous news!!! Out of 18 HBCUs who requested Obama to speak at commencement, he chose HAMPTON UNIVERSITY. No, I didn’t stutter! Students of the senior class (QT7) are ecstatic, and will be celebrating all weekend. The official senior social will be held tonight at Baxter’s in Nawwfockk @ 9 p.m.
After a lot of negative press through out the academic school year, Hampton definitely made an AMAZING PR move! Locals will be on deck. #kanyeshrug
