JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Tickets to see Michelle Obama are hot commodities right now at Jackson State University. 
 
The First Lady will speak at the Commencement Ceremony on Saturday. The line for tickets Monday morning was two hours long, according to students. 

The tickets are free for graduating seniors. Each senior gets 16 tickets, which includes 15 for friends and family and one for themselves.

The excitement is creating an air of urgency. 

"I have been waiting since about 9:20, and this line just started moving thank God," says Senior Chanel Wilkerson. 

"She's the first African American First Lady, and that's a big thing, especially to come to our graduation," says Senior Lamar Lanus.

Graduating students will also be given preference for any leftover tickets.
