These are all the people who really thought Obama was coming to RU

Lol, sorry

If you were among the many who fell for our evil, yet beautifully crafted April fool’s joke yesterday, we’re sorry (but not really).

We even fooled your parents, LOL.


So no, Obama will not be speaking at commencement, as far as we know. Even though this was a very fun April fool’s prank, who knows, maybe he’ll see your reactions, and he’ll be here for our revolutionary 250th Commencement.
