Posted Friday, March 10, 3:23 p.m. President Bush will speak at GW Monday about the global war on terror. The event will mark the second time in his presidency he has come to the University.
His speech starts at 1:15 p.m. in the Marvin Center’s Betts Theater. It is not open to the public.
Bush’s first visit to campus was on Oct. 15, 2002, when he delivered a speech on minority homeownership in the School of Media and Public Affairs building’s Jack Morton Auditorium. About 100 students stood outside the building, some of them supporting and others protesting his policies. He’ll miss most of the students Monday, as they will be out of D.C. for Spring Break.
