Nine SXU students to attend Obama’s historic inauguration

Nine Saint Xavier University students will travel to Washington, D.C., to witness the historic inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama, the nation’s first African-American president.

The students leave the morning of Saturday, Jan. 10 and will spend the week at the Washington Center. They will attend seminars conducted by public affairs notables, such as CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent Bob Schieffer.

The students hail from across Chicagoland, including Chicago, Oak Forest, LaGrange Park, Frankfort and Oak Lawn, as well as Texas, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
