President Obama made a surprise drop-by at a roundtable conversation with young Americans at Penn State University during his visit last week. The roundtable was one of four held by the White House Office of Public Engagement surrounding the President’s visit to Central Pennsylvania. The roundtables provided an opportunity for a diverse group of young leaders to sit down for a candid conversation with the White House on key issues the President has been working on, including jobs and the economy, the cost of education, civic engagement, energy, innovation, housing, Sudan, and equal rights.
Check out some of what the President said during his visit:
Leaders who participated in the White House roundtables included members of the Council of Commonwealth Student Governments, Penn State Graduate and Undergraduate Student Governments, Interfraterntiy Council, Panhellenic Association, nonprofits, Engineering Honor Society, College Republicans & College Democrats, Rainbow Roundtable, Environmental Society, and a number of other constituency and issue-related organizations and youth leaders.
