President Obama will be able to check visiting all 50 states off his unofficial presidential bucket list before he leaves office.

In May, President Obama will deliver the commencement address at Lake Area Technical Institute, one of the nation’s top ranking community colleges that just happens to be located in the only state the President has yet to visit: South Dakota. Obama visited his 49th state while in office earlier this month, Utah, but at the time no plans were announced for a trip to the 50th.
