    President Barack Obama plans to hold an education-related event at the University of Texas when he's in Austin on Monday.

    President Barack Obama's appearance Monday at the University of Texas in Austin isn't for everyone -- literally.

    He plans to hold an education-related event at the University of Texas. He's making the official presidential stop while in the state for Democratic fundraisers in Austin and Dallas.

    White House spokesman Matt Lerich said Thursday that the invitation-only audience will be made up largely of UT-Austin students, but some from Austin Community College will be there, too.

    A Texas Democratic source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information, said that the event will be in a facility on campus that holds about 2,000 people.
