Two students (who only identified themselves as Alex and Alaina) bide their time in line 30 minutes before the gates would open for President Obama's visit to UW-Madison. Students were in line before 7:00am in some cases, for an event that wouldn't get started until after 2:00pm. Many classes were also cancelled, with many buildings closed on campus. » Order a reprint of this photo« Previous Next »
