High school students experience life "Under the Dome"

From lobbyist to press secretaries there are thousands of government related jobs in Springfield. Tuesday, high school students from around the state got a good look at life inside the capitol. The visit will help them make important decisions about their futures.

Whether they are politicians or policy makers, many who report to work at the statehouse each day got their start at UIS. “I graduated UIS back in 1974,” said Representative Wayne Rosenthal, (R) 98th District.

The "Under the Dome" event was featured in a March 8, 2011, report by WICS-TV 20.
