AF1 arrived in Atlanta Hartsfield Airport at 12:13 pm eastern time. POTUS deplaned along with Representative Hank Jackson and Admiral Sandy Winnefeld. Eric Schultz, deputy WH press secretary, said that the admiral was on the plane because he is a "proud Georgia Tech alum" and he said he is traveling with POTUS "in that capacity."

POTUS was greeted at the bottom of the steps by the following, per the WH:

Kasim Reed, Mayor of Atlanta
John Eaves, Fulton County Chairman
David Scott, US Representative

POTUS then briefly worked the rope line at the Tarmac.

We are rolling for the first event at Georgia Tech for remarks about student aid. It is 12:27 pm
