Hot on the heels of an announcement that celebrity chef Cat Cora was coming to the University of South Florida, the school announced a second big-name guest this April: Leslie Odom Jr.

The Tony-winning actor and singer will deliver a free lecture at USF in Tampa as part of the school's USF Week. It'll take place at 8 p.m. April 3 in the Marshall Student Center ballroom.

The best part is it'll be a lot easier to get into this event than Hamilton. USF University Lecture Series events are free and open to the public, although there is a preference given to students, faculty and staff. If you don't get in, there's always Bullstock, the free USF Week concet that this year will feature X Ambassadors and We the Kings.
