Students, faculty and staff could enter an online lottery for tickets to Friday's event
They were drawn at random Wednesday at noon and handed out to students in the afternoon.
"And it was kind of more of a shock thing more than anything. when I saw the post about him coming to Binghamton I was like "oh that's really cool, but I probably won't get to see him because it's move-in day. But now I'm really excited," said Evelyn Chebere, a junior at Binghamton University.
The president scheduled to speak at the Union at 12:45 Friday.
