Ohio State grads can get more tickets to see Obama

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Graduating Ohio State University students are getting access to more tickets for the May 5 commencement that will include a speech by President Barack Obama.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/17V6wvK ) reports students can get up to 14 tickets each. The change came after graduates attending the event didn’t all sign up for the seven tickets available each of them by Monday’s deadline.

A university spokeswoman says eligible students will receive emails with instructions on reserving more tickets beginning Wednesday.

The school initially received a flood of complaints when it limited graduates to four tickets for the event. That allotment was later raised to seven tickets. The spokeswoman wouldn’t say how many remain up for grabs.

Obama would be the third sitting U.S. president to speak at an Ohio State commencement.
