    Donald Trump to Hold Rally at West Chester University

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appears on the NBC "Today" television program in New York Thursday, April 21, 2016.

    Donald Trump is headed back to college in Southeastern Pennsylvania, but this time it's just to rally supporters ahead of Tuesday's primary election.

    The Republican presidential candidate and Wharton School graduate will appear at West Chester University on Monday, the university announced Friday night.

    Trump's campaign will hold the event in the school's Hollinger Field House at 4 p.m. Tickets are required.

    In a statement to the university community, West Chester University's interim president Christopher Fiorentino said the state school provides access to its facilities to outside parties. He stressed that the rally doesn't act as an endorsement of the divisive and flamboyant candidate.

    Trump leads the GOP presidential race in delegates and polling. He campaigned in Harrisburg Thursday night and Harrington, Delaware Friday.

    Tickets for the event are being reserved through Trump's campaign website.

    Pennsylvania's primary election is being held Tuesday.

    "Students for a Democratic Society," a West Chester University student group, announced Sunday they would protest Trump's rally.

    "We the students do not accept the racist, homophobic, and anti-woman Trump," a group spokesperson wrote in a released statement. "He is free to speak his mind, but not at our campus."
