On Tuesday, December 16, C-SPAN’s Campaign 2008 Bus will visit Xavier University from 12 noon until 3 p.m stationed on Herald Avenue near Bellarmine Chapel. Part of C-SPAN’s community outreach, this mobile production studio offers presentations about the political process and C-SPAN’s unique coverage of politics geared toward students, bringing public affairs into the heart of American communities. All are welcome to visit the bus and see its exhibits about the electoral process and this past election in particular. Admission is free.
The bus is 45 feet long, 9 feet wide, 13 feet tall and weighs 22 tons. It has traveled the country this year visiting over 110 major political events in battleground states and touring 43 state capitals. On a regular basis the bus has visited middle and high schools, colleges and universities since 1993. More information is available at www.c-spanschoolbus.org.
“For many people, C-SPAN is the electronic media of record,” says Gene Beaupre, director of government relations at Xavier. “If you walk into any Congressional office in Washington, D.C., you will see C-Span on in that office.”
