C-SPAN's Campaign 2012 bus - a sort of politics classroom on wheels - will visit the Xavier University campus Thursday afternoon.

The 45-foot long bus is a mobile production studio that offers presentations on the electoral process and C-SPAN's coverage of the election.

It has been on the road since August 2011, visiting major political events and 43 state capitals. Since 1993, it has visited middle and high schools and colleges and universities.
