- Following is an announcement sent to the Northwestern community with information on how to view the speech by President Obama Oct. 2.

As you heard from President Schapiro's announcement earlier today, we are extremely pleased that President Barack Obama will come to Northwestern's campus in Evanston to make a speech on the economy this Thursday, Oct. 2. We're excited by the opportunity to welcome President Obama to our campus for his speech to students from the University and Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.
