McKinley Tech students, in Washington DC, were still settling into their new classes on Friday when Obama casually walked in, leaving them pleasantly surprised.
"You guys don’t mind me crashing right?" Obama asked, as his audience struggled to maintain composure.
He said: "One of the things I did throughout my presidency was I’d meet with groups of young people everywhere I went, whether it was here in the United States or when I was traveling overseas. Just to kind of hear from them, find out what they’re interested in, because I do believe that most of the problems we have are going to be solved by you.
His spokesman Keith Schiller told The Hill that Friday’s visit was a part Obama’s "ongoing conversation with young people."
