Waiting at Colorado State University under Clark by 8 a.m. is an already formed line of eager people awaiting the arrival of President Obama. Nine hours prior to his expected arrival, both students and non-students alike prepare themselves for a long, motionless day under the sun. Unable to bring bags into the venue, various items were brought to the line in an effort to pass the hours. Excitement is building up and these people say it’s well worth the wait.

Colorado State University sophomore Nick Hunter was the first in line to see President Obama speak. He and his friends camped out at the Study Cube in the Morgan Library the night before. They arrived at 11:00 p.m. and took shifts waking up on the hour to keep watch. Following a long night, Hunter began waiting under Clark at 4:30 a.m. with nothing but a chair and a bottle of apple juice. Throughout the day, he and his friends will be switching off in order to keep their top spot in line.
