KAMLOOPS — Tickets to see Dr. Jane Goodall at the university were snatched up in less than an hour last week and because of the popularity the student union is now issuing overflow tickets by lottery.

As part of the Common Voices Lecture Series Goodall will be at Thompson Rivers University Grand Hall on March 24. Screenings of the lecture will also be shown in both the Mountain Room and the terrace in the Campus Activity Centre, though you will still need overflow tickets to attend those.

While tickets are free, overflow tickets will now be issued through a lottery, which will be announced March 19.

The popular primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist and UN Messenger of Peace will discuss current environmental threats and reasons for hope. She will also be encouraging the audience to do their part to make a positive difference every day.
