Tomorrow is graduation day for UC Irvine with a ceremony in Angel Stadium and a very special guest of honor: President Barack Obama.

The last sitting president to speak at the university was Lyndon Johnson, who was part of the dedication of the school's construction 50 years ago. Among the students who will be in attendance tomorrow is Ruchi Bal, a graduate with a degree in economics.

Bal joins Take Two to explain how much anticipation there is on campus for the President's visit
