Common to Visit Penn State Campus on February 10

Wednesday, Jan 22 by User 5 Comments

Lonnie Lynn, better known by his stage name Common, will visit Penn State on February 10 as a part of SPA’s distinguished speaker series. The Chicago-based rapper, actor, and motivational speaker – known for songs like “Universal Mind Control”, “The Food”, “The Light”, and “Go!” — will speak at Eisenhower Auditorium at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the lecture, called “The Greatness in You,” are free to students and available on January 27 at the HUB ticket desk, BJC, Eisenhower Auditorium, and the Downtown Theatre. The general public will be able to purchase tickets starting the following week on February 3.

Common has also been featured in films like “American Gangster,” “Smokin’ Aces,” and “Date Night.” He currently stars in AMC’s original series “Hell On Wheels.” The rapper also formed the Common Ground Foundation in 2007 which creates support systems for foster children and troubled youth.

This is the second announced SPA “Distinguished Speaker” this semester, although the two couldn’t be more different. Watergate journalist Bob Woodward will speak two weeks later on February 27 in what is shaping up to be a solid semester for SPA.
