Fallon returns for pre-Super Bowl performance

Over the past few weeks, Butler University  students’ Twitter and Facebook feeds have been covered with Jimmy Fallon tweets and messages.

Now, the “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” host is making a special visit to campus during his stint here at Hilbert Circle Theatre, but the social media campaign may not have been  the sole

“I hope it helped,” Vice President for Student Affairs Levester Johnson said. “But in the end, we reached out to [Fallon’s people] and made an offer, and we were very lucky to be selected.”

The Office of Student Affairs, the Student Government Association and Clowes Memorial Hall worked together to bring Fallon and friends to campus.

Along with Fallon’s personal show for the Butler community, Kodi Colip, a senior marketing major, was selected to work as a production assistant for the “Late Night” show while it is at the Hilbert.

All the schools that received discounted tickets were notified about the opportunity. Colip, who helped coordinate the #bringjimmyback campaign, including the flash mob, was what Johnson called an “obvious choice” for the role.

Colip said her resume was sent in by Butler, and she found out the good news three weeks later.

It looks like Fallon might have a soft spot for bulldogs.

Fallon performs at 7 p.m. on Sunday at Clowes.
