Students flooded the Center for the Arts at Elon University, only to find a line wrapped all the way through the building, yesterday as tickets for guest speaker, Anderson Cooper became available to students and faculty.

Copper, an acclaimed journalist and CNN anchor, will present a lecture entitled “A 360-degree Look at World Events” at Elon on Tuesday, April 7th.

The box office opened at 12:30, Monday afternoon and students and faculty flocked to get their ticket. By the end of the day 400 student tickets remained and 1,000 tickets will be available to the general public for $12.

“It was ridiculous, I have class all day Monday and am required to attend the lecture for class,” said freshman Parker Davis. “How am I supposed to get my ticket when I am taking midterms or in class during the only time that the box office is open?”

Students were not happy with the long wait they faced Monday afternoon.

“I waited for over an hour and I got here before the box office opened,” said junior Kristen Clements. “I ended up missing my second class because the line was so long and the ticketing process was so slow.”

The remaining student tickets and the general admission tickets are available today from 12:30-5 p.m. and students who were not able to get tickets yesterday are encouraged to face the line once again.

    Did the tickets “cause the scene” (inanimate objects taking action) or is Anderson Cooper a hot ticket at Elon University? You might want to reconsider the headline.

    It was good to see that you got out and reported on this spot-news!

    There’s a new error in the headline now. Read it carefully.
