More than 30 students are lined up outside Lisner Auditorium for tickets to the Oct. 5 event featuring Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at Lisner’s Box Office 9 a.m. and are free for students.

The two first people in line, freshmen Travis Fosbenner and Danny Wright, said they arrived at 8:30 p.m., and plan to camp outside Lisner. Most of those waiting were freshmen, who came equipped for the night with snacks and board games.

CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour will moderate the event with School of Media and Public Affairs Director Frank Sesno. The interview will be broadcast on CNN 3 p.m. on Oct. 6.
