U.S. Government Class Visits Indiana Statehouse
Juniors and seniors from the summer U.S. Government class visited the Indiana Statehouse yesterday as an extension of their on-campus program. After taking an official tour of the State Capitol building and visiting the Governor's office, they had a special meeting with State Representative and La Porte native Jim Pressel. Pressel spoke about his role in the government and what it was like to enter the political arena without having prior experience. For the U.S. Government students, it was their "content coming alive" – an opportunity to see politics in action firsthand and to learn how they can get involved.
