Shawnee Community College Student Senate members visit Springfield
Members of the Shawnee Community College Student Senate had an opportunity to visit the capital in Springfield on Nov. 9. During the visit, the students toured both the old and new capitol buildings. They met with State Sen. Dale Fowler, R-Harrisburg, and had a chance to observe how state government works by attending a special session of the legislature. The students reported that the trip was a great learning experience and they are looking forward to a return trip scheduled for the Spring semester.
