Vice President Joe Biden will deliver a speech on economic policy April 28 in the Marvin Center, the College Democrats announced Thursday.

The lottery period to nab tickets started at 6 p.m. Thursday and will close Friday at noon. Undergraduate and graduate students with a GWorld can register for the event, which is set for 2 p.m. on Monday.

The event is sponsored by the CDs, Program Board and the Student Association. It will be held in the Marvin Center Grand Ballroom, which can seat about 425 people.

The speech will come the week after Biden flew to Kiev to meet with policy leaders about the conflict in Ukraine.

Biden last spoke on campus last July about foreign policy.
