Holy Cross Students to Witness Presidential Inauguration

January 4th, 2013 by 


About 40 students from the College of the Holy Cross will travel to Washington, D.C., to witness Barack Obama’s second presidential inauguration on Jan. 21. Holy Cross students also attended President Obama’s first inauguration in 2009.

The bus will leave Holy Cross on the afternoon of Jan. 20 and return around midnight the following day. Students will stay at sister Jesuit school Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore, and will be accompanied by Mike Leavitt, director of Recreation, Intramurals, and Club Sports.

The group, which does not possess tickets to the official events, plans to attend the parade and be close to the U.S. Capitol when President Obama takes the oath of office.

The program trip is sponsored by the Office of Student Involvement.
