BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University students, faculty and Bloomington area residents will have an opportunity to join thousands of others who have boarded C-SPAN's Campaign 2008 Bus as part of the "Road to the White House" tour when the bus stops at IU this Thursday (May 22).

"As the political network of record, we're pleased to offer a variety of resources for educators, students and first-time voters at Indiana University."
