Although the 8,000 available tickets for tonightâ€™s Condoleezza Rice lecture sold-out early last week, students and community members still looking to snag a seat at the lecture may be in luck.
Those interested in getting a ticket can line up outside of Moby Arena at 5 p.m., and at 6:50 p.m. any available seats will be distributed to those in line.
Entry is free but tickets are required to attend the event.
The lecture begins at 7 p.m. and will be immediately followed by a question and answer session of audience-submitted topics. Information on how to submit a question will be displayed on the video boards the night of the lecture.
Doors open at Moby Arena at 5:30 p.m., and audience members are recommended to arrive early since most of the seats are general admission.
Riceâ€™s address, which is part of the Monfort Lecture Series, will focus on her tenure as the 66th secretary of state, as well as her thoughts on current world events, foreign policy and education.
The Monfort Lecture Series is courtesy of a $200,000 donation from the Monfort Excellence Fund, and according to the Monfort website it serves to bring in speakers of â€œinternational distinction.â€
