President Barack Obama addressed an invitation-only audience in Carnegie Mellon’s Wiegand Gymnasium on Wednesday, June 2. Though Barack and Michelle Obama visited Carnegie Mellon during the 2008 election campaign, this event marked the President’s first visit to campus since being elected. His speech focused on the economy and a sustainable energy future, including the progress his administration has made thus far and the goals he has for the coming years.
