The Obama family has been showering Princeton with love this week. Just this past weekend, President Obama was seen cheering for the Princeton women’s basketball team, and today, oldest daughter, Malia Obama was spotted on campus in the morning, escorted by Shawon Jackson and some rather conspicuous Secret Service agents. Also sighted were seven inconspicuous NJ and Texas plated vans parked behind Nassau Hall, some of them still running with people inside.
Malia sightings were reported sporadically through the morning. Here we’ve compiled a short timeline:
~10:20 – Malia Obama is spotted in Mathey Dining Hall. Several Yik Yaks are made about Malia. Most are down voted in seconds. Coincidence? I think not.
10:30 – Malia Obama is seen with a group of students at 1879 arch.
10:50 – Shawon is seen talking about alumni engagement with Malia outside East Pyne.
11:04 – Malia Obama leaves Firestone with Shawon. Press Clubber Spencer Parts gets a shot of her in Firestone with Shawon and a few friends.
11:18 – Shawon seen sans Malia.
As for what she was doing on campus, we suspect it’s part of a college tour for high school junior Malia. BusinessInsider reported she was scheduled to visit Brown this week, after visiting Columbia University, and New York University and Barnard College last month. We hope she enjoyed her tour of her mother’s alma mater! Princeton 2020?
