The C-SPAN Bus will be at Hope College on Thursday, Sept. 5 as part of a Michigan colleges tour.

The bus will be in the parking lot across from the DeWitt Center, 12th Street and Columbia Avenue in Holland, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The public is invited. Admission will be free.

The C-SPAN Bus is an interactive, multi-media learning center that brings C-SPAN’s coverage of public affairs to communities nationwide and teaches the public how to follow Washington Your Way.

Aboard the bus, visitors will learn about C-SPAN programming and resources via HD-TVs, touch screen computers, laptops, and mobile devices.

The bus will be highlighting C-SPAN’s new series that began this past February, “First Ladies: Influence and Image.” The series features the women who served in the role of First Lady over 44 administrations, examining their private lives and the public roles they played in the White House.
