President Obama spoke at UT in August 2010.

President Barack Obama is heading to Austin for a fundraiser. The visit is planned for May 10. 

President Obama announced this week that he would run for re-election in 2012. It wasn't a huge surprise, but he is the first to announce his plans.

In 2008, then-candidate Obama visited Austin at least two times. In August, 2010 the president spoke at the University of Texas Gregory Gym about making college more accessible to increase American competitiveness abroad. You can watch his full speech here.
