More than 6,000 free tickets have been distributed to the President's Forum Lecture Series featuring former First Lady Barbara Bush at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 11, at Baylor University's Ferrell Center.

Because of the sellout, Baylor public safety officials encourage ticketholders to arrive early at the Ferrell Center. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with the event beginning promptly at 7:30 p.m. Officials also say that no backpacks or bags will be allowed into the Ferrell Center.

As part of the program, Baylor President Robert B. Sloan Jr. will confer on Mrs. Bush the honorary doctor of humane letters degree. Audience members also will have an opportunity as they arrive at the Ferrell Center to submit questions for Mrs. Bush to answer following her speech.

The President's Forum Lecture Series brings to campus national and world leaders to promote dialogue about important issues facing our society. Past lecturers have included former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes and The McLaughlin Group.
