Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter will host his 31st annual Carter Town Hall meeting for Emory University freshmen at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, in the Woodruff P.E. Center, 600 Asbury Circle, on the Emory campus.

After opening remarks by Emory President James Wagner and President Carter, University Distinguished Professor at Emory, Carter will answer written questions from students (media will not be able to ask questions). Questions are put in a tumbler and selected at random. President Carter will answer as many questions as the one-hour timeframe permits. The event is not open to the public, but press seating will be available.

Due to security requirements, it is recommended that media representatives arrive by 7:30 p.m. Do not bring any bags, purses, briefcases, etc.

This is a ticketed event with limited press seating, so media representatives planning to attend should register by 4 p.m. the day of the event by contacting Beverly Clark at 404-712-8780 or beverly.clark@emory.edu. Members of the media planning to attend must be registered and present press credentials and a photo ID at the door for admittance and reserved seating.
