Aung San Suu Kyi is speaking at Sprague Hall next Thursday, a venue that holds 680 people. Tickets went on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m. They were gone 10 minutes later, students waiting in line said.

The line to obtain tickets to see Aung San Suu Kyi, the legendary Burmese activist who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, stretched from the second floor of Woolsey all the way to Sprague Hall at 9:45 a.m.

In an email Wednesday afternoon, University Vice President Linda Lorimer reminded the students that the event will be simulcast in Levinson Auditorium at the Law School, and will be livestreamed at http://new.livestream.com/yale.
