Students Camp Out for Team Dave+Oprah

While Twilight fans were busy camping out in downtown Los Angeles this weekend for tonight’s Breaking Dawn – Part 2 premiere, another overnight line-up sprung up Friday-Saturday in Muncie, Indiana. It was for a different kind of sequel: the November 26 installment of Ball State’s David Letterman Lecture Series featuring very special guest Oprah Winfrey.

Per a report in the Ball State Daily News:

Some students had spent more than 15 hours outside for the tickets. For the overnight stay, students brought everything from a tent to a dog…

This event is once in a lifetime, Kyle Williams, a junior fashion merchandising major said. “Twenty years from now, I will be able to say I got a free ticket in college to see Oprah,” Williams said.

It should be a very fun post-Montecito Thanksgiving SRO excursion for Oprah. Previous guests in the free lecture series have included Rachel Maddow, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone and Ted Koppel.
