Ticket lotteries announced for Clinton address Oct. 15 (Released: 9/19/95)

by Mark J. Roy, Office of University Communications.

STORRS, Conn. -- Three separate lotteries will be held to distribute tickets for President Clinton's address Oct. 15 at the University of Connecticut's Gampel Pavilion.

Lottery criteria have been established for distributing tickets to three groups: students; faculty, staff, and emeriti; and the general public, said Heather Ricker-Gilbert, director of community and campus relations.

For all three groups, ticket requests must be submitted during the week of Sept. 25-29, with the lottery drawings to begin Oct. 3. Tickets will be mailed to lottery winners after that date.

The total number of tickets to be distributed will be based on the number of invited dignitaries and other guests who indicate they will attend the Clinton address, Ricker-Gilbert said.

Clinton will speak on human rights issues at 3 p.m. in Gampel following the dedication of the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center on the Storrs campus. Opening events are scheduled through Oct. 18. The observance of the 50th anniversary of the war crimes trials following World War II will continue over the next year with the theme Fifty Years After Nuremberg: Human Rights and Rule of Law. The events will culminate in a major academic conference at UConn in October 1996.
