Remarks by the President to Students


Location: Iowa City, IA

THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody! (Applause.) It is great to be back in Iowa City. (Applause.) I'm not going to give a long speech here. I just want to say thank you to all the people who are taking an interest in this important issue. I know we've got a lot of students here. Everybody cares about making sure you guys can pay for college in an affordable way, so that's what I'm going to be talking about.

But I just want to tell all of you I couldn't appreciate you more, taking the time to come out, and I hope that -- how many seniors do we have here? (Applause.) All right. Seniors, you've got just a few more weeks to go, so make sure to finish strong; don't goof off too much. (Laughter.)

And I just want you to know that Iowa always feels like home to me, because I spend so much time here. (Applause.) So, all right, thank you, everybody. I'm going to shake some hands. Thanks, everybody. (Applause.)
