President Barack Obama addressed a crowd of students at the University of Iowa in Iowa City on Wednesday, April 25. The event was part of his two-day trip to presidential battleground states -- including North Carolina, Colorado and Iowa -- to discuss his student-loan reform platform and other issues.

In addition to the University of Iowa, the president visited the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he joined Late Night host Jimmy Fallon to "slow-jam" the news and sit down for a lighthearted interview.
