Penn State will host its first presidential hopeful of the 2016 election cycle this week when Vermont senator Bernie Sanders makes an appearance Tuesday evening at Rec Hall. Doors open at 4 p.m., with the event expected to get underway at 6:30.

Penn State is a popular stop when candidates tour Pennsylvania: Incumbent George H.W. Bush in 1992 and then-Senator Barack Obama in 2008 held rallies on campus. (President Obama was back on campus in 2011 to promote technological advancement.) And who could forget Bill Clinton’s trip to Happy Valley in 1996, when he became the only person to mix flavors at the Creamery? The former president was at Penn State Behrend earlier this month campaigning on behalf of his wife, Hillary, whose Penn State connections run deep: Both her father, Hugh Rodham ’35, and brother Hugh ’72 are former Nittany Lion football players.

Tickets for the Sanders event are free, and you can register for them on his website. We’ll let you know if any other presidential hopefuls come to town between now and election day.
