Eastern Kentucky University is getting ready for the First Lady's visit Saturday.

Michelle Obama will be giving a commencement speech for the university's 2013 graduating class. Mark Whitt, with EKU Public Relations, said security will be tight for the expected crowd of 6,000 people.

"When they enter into Alumni Coliseum there will be certain items that they will not be able to bring in with them, like umbrellas, pocket knives, bottled water, things like that they cannot bring inside with them," said Whitt.

Whitt said everyone should expect to be screened by secret service. Saturday's commencement will be held at Alumni Coliseum
