Congressmen on campus

Two former United States Congressmen will be on campus from March 30-April 1 as the University participates in the national Congress to Campus program.

The program, operated by the Stennis Center for Public Service, sends former Congressmen in pairs—one Democrat and one Republican—to college campuses across the country to bring their perspectives on Congress and democracy in America.

Congressman Sam Coppersmith (D-AZ) and Congressman Bob McEwen (R-OH) will engage in a variety of activities over the course of their visit, including classroom talks in the political science department and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work, a lecture, and a Career Center Lunch with a Pro.

Students can have breakfast with the Congressmen from 9-10 a.m. March 31 in Whispers Cafe. Their lecture on “YouTube and Political Rhetoric,” will be held later in the day from 4- 5 p.m. in the Women’s Building Formal Lounge.
