President Obama is scheduled to visit Carnegie Mellon University on Wednesday, a White House official said Friday.

Congressman Mike Doyle, D-Forest Hills, said the president will talk about small businesses and the economy.

"He will be making similar stops across the state," Doyle said.

More details about Obama's visit were to be made available today. The White House and university officials declined to provide a reason for the visit, its location and who would be allowed to attend.

Obama last visited the campus as a candidate on June 26, 2008, about three weeks after he clinched the Democratic nomination. This would be his first visit as president.

"We're just thrilled," said Teresa Thomas, spokeswoman for Carnegie Mellon.
