C-SPAN Bus visits OU

NORMAN — University of Oklahoma students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to learn about C-SPAN’s programs and resources from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Feb. 6 by stepping aboard the C-SPAN Bus during a stop on its winter tour of universities in the Big 12 Conference. The tours will take place on the east side of the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The bus, now in its 21st year on the road, will be at OU and other locations helping inform communities about the public affairs network’s ongoing First Ladies feature series. It is visiting cities, schools and universities across the country, promoting C-SPAN’s educational and political resources for students, teachers and community members along the way.

This winter, the bus tour will coincide with the finale of the series “First Ladies: Influence & Image,” which airs every Monday night at 8 p.m. on C-SPAN. For more information on the series, visit c-span.org/firstladies.

Aboard the C-SPAN Bus, visitors can learn about First Ladies and the networks’ other programming and resources through interactive technology:

· In-depth public affairs coverage and educational outreach

· Touch-screen quizzes on C-SPAN and the three branches of government

· Mobile devices demonstrating Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, YouTube, Tout, XM Radio and mobile apps

· HD cameras and production equipment demonstrating C-SPAN’s capability to produce public affairs programming aboard the Bus

Prior to the Bus Tour, OU President David Boren will be featured on the C-SPAN program “The Washington Journal” at 8:30 a.m. At 8 a.m. Patrick Meirick, director of the Political Communication Center and the Political Commercial Archive, will also be featured.

C-SPAN also provides a unique way to experience public affairs through c-span.org, where you can access over 200,000 hours of political and governmental footage dating back to 1987.
