IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — President Barack Obama will speak at the University of California, Irvine, commencement ceremony in June after students and staff delivered thousands of postcards requesting him.

White House spokesman Keith Maley said Thursday that Obama is looking forward to delivering the address celebrating the 50th anniversary of the dedication of the campus by President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Campus officials say Obama will speak at a unified ceremony for undergraduates, graduate and professional schools on June 14 at Angel Stadium.

The school invited Obama last year and delivered nearly 10,000 postcards from students, faculty, staff and alumni to the White House earlier this year.

UC Irvine Chancellor Michael V. Drake says the school is thrilled that Obama accepted the invitation.
