C-SPAN bus greets visitors outside Woodbury Campus Center in Portland

The C-SPAN Bus — a portable classroom and TV studio — visited the Portland Campus during a recent sweep through northern New England as part of its “50 Capitals Tour.”

While dozens of students, faculty and staff climbed aboard — checking out the multimedia experience — WGME TV created a meta moment as it filmed the visits to the bus.

Following the visit — which also included Augusta — the bus made stops in Concord, New Hampshire, Montpelier, Vermont and Albany, New York.

Based in Washington, C-SPAN is a public service created by the American cable television industry to provide audiences with live gavel-to-gavel proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and to other forums where public policy is discussed, debated and decided.
