WKU Students Witnessing History in Washington D.C.

A group of WKU political science students will see history made before their eyes Monday. The group is in Washington, DC for the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

Since 1989, political science department chair Dr. Saundra Ardrey has been leading trips to the Capitol every four years for the students to witness a presidential inauguration for themselves. While they're there, Ardrey says they also attend Senate hearings and confirmation hearings, meet with members of Kentucky's Congressional delegation and students have the opportunity to interview for jobs or internships.

The students will return from Washington Wednesday.

WKU Public Radio is carrying live coverage from NPR throughout the morning and afternoon Monday of President Obama's inauguration. Click here to see a schedule of our coverage.
