Photos from Johnnie/Bennie Day at the Capitol

Day at the Capitol is an opportunity for college students to go to the Minnesota State Capitol and lobby for the Minnesota State Grant Program by meeting with their local representatives. This government grant gives an average of about $3,000 to about 25% of our campuses, and lets recipients choose the place of higher education that best suits them - which makes it an extremely beneficial and pertinent grant to Minnesota's private colleges. The day is organized by members of the Minnesota Private College Counsel, and the day ends for Bennies and Johnnies with a networking event organized by the Eugene J. McCarthy Center for Public Policy and Civic Engagement.
