Bush touts public service to grads

President George W. Bush urged Ohio State University's 2002 graduating class today to become part of a "culture of service."

"America needs more than taxpayers, spectators and occasional voters," Bush said during a 20-minute commencement speech at Ohio Stadium. "America needs fulltime citizens."

Many of the 40,000 people attending the university's 360th commencement ceremony waited in incredibly long lines to get into the stadium because of tight security due to the president's visit. However, at one point the university announced that those who wanted to be seated in the upper deck, instead of their assigned seats in the lower stadium, could enter without going through metal detectors. Many took the opportunity.

The president arrived in Air Force One at Port Columbus around 9 a.m. and was gone two and one-half hours later. He made no other stops.

When he left, Bush had two reminders of his visit to OSU: an honorary doctorate of public administration degree and a football jersey from Coach Jim Tressel. The jersey bore the number 43; Bush is the 43rd president.

The university also awarded an honorary degree to George M. Steinbrenner III, owner of the New York Yankees.

After the graduation ceremonies, Bush was continuing on to Houston to highlight, by visiting a summer reading camp, the kinds of things volunteers can do.

The White House touted the speech as the president's first to a graduating class at a civilian university since Sept. 11. He addressed the class of 2002 at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point on June 1.

Bush was invited to speak at the Ohio State commencement by representatives of the graduating class. But immediately before class members filed into the giant football stadium, an announcer instructed the crowd that all the university's speakers deserve to be treated with respect and that anyone demonstrating or heckling would be subject to expulsion and arrest. The announcer urged that Bush be greeted with a "thunderous" ovation.

And he was. When university President William Kirwan saluted Bush's response to Sept. 11, the crowd of thousands stood to applaud, whistle and cheer.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

A full report will appear in The Columbus Dispatch on Saturday.
