On Jan. 13, C-SPAN’s Campaign 2008 bus—which has toured nearly 150 college campuses over the last two years—made a pit stop at AU.

Students, faculty, and staff climbed on board the 45-foot-long bus to enjoy multimedia demonstrations and learn more about the cable network’s 22-ton mobile studio.


Since January 2007, the bus has been to 285 cities in 43 states. Like thousands of other motor coaches, the C-SPAN bus was in Washington for the Jan. 20 inauguration. —AF
