Ohio State University says President Obama will deliver the commencement address in May, becoming the third sitting president to do so.


 It will also mark the largest graduating class in university history, with 12-thousand students expected to be awarded degrees that day. Additional security measures will be in place for the presidential visit; all guests will have to have a ticket, and graduating students will be allowed to claim four tickets. It will mark Obama's fifth trip to Columbus in the last 16 months; his last visit, the day before the general election, featured singer Bruce Springsteen and rapper Jay Z.
