MxCC’s annual trip to the Capitol and Legislative Office Building (LOB) in Hartford is always an exciting time for students. Students from all different majors and interests take the trip every year. This trip is a great way to see if a career in politics is right for you. It’s also a great way to learn more about what’s going on in Congress.
This year, the trip will be held on Friday, October 10. There will be a tour of the Capitol and the LOB. The trip also consists of time spent meeting area legislators. Never before have we had such an amazing line-up of legislators. Last year’s speakers include Sen. Paul R Doyle, Rep. Joe Serra, Sen. Dante Bartolomeo, Rep. Matt Lesser, Sen. Art Linares, Rep. Melissa Ziobron, and Rep. Phil Miller. Each legislator will speak for about 10 minutes. It is very fast-moving and exciting, so students will be able to hear many different thoughts, ideas, and viewpoints.
Round-trip bus transportation, the tour, and the meeting with legislators is FREE. Lunch for MxCC students lunch is free, up to $10. For more details, click here. To register for the event, email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is first-come-first-served so register soon! [Photos by Ben Jordan]
