Capitol Visit

California State Capitol in Sacramento

The Department of Political Science sponsors an annual daylong bus trip to the State Capitol in Sacramento. Assembly members act as official hosts of the trip and faculty and students experience an exciting day at the California Capitol. Students step into the arena of high-level politics and public policy and spend a full day interacting with legislators, lobbyists, and key members of the legislature. The trip offers a “behind the scenes” tour of the Capitol’s centers of power and decision-making.
