Presidential Inauguration Viewing
President Lee C. Bollinger invites the Columbia University community to join together in watching the historic Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama (CC'83).
While other notable Columbians Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt and Gen. Dwight Eisenhower have served in the nation's highest office, this non-partisan event will mark the swearing-in of the first Columbia graduate as President of the United States.
A "Jumbo Tron" screen will show the inauguration live on Low Library Plaza beginning at approximately 11:00 a.m.
Hot chocolate and warm cider will be served.
Please carry your Columbia University ID with you throughout the day.
Like the inaugural on the Mall in Washington, the live broadcast event on Low Plaza will take place rain, snow or shine unless there are extremely severe conditions.
