It's unlikely that your federal government would open its doors to you for a few weeks to meet those in charge, to ask questions and to share your opinions. Odds are slim of such happening at the state level, either. But that's exactly what we're doing at College Station City Hall: Inviting you to be part of our annual Citizens University!  

You will get to talk to those who build budgets, construct capital projects, plan for growth, keep the lights on and neighborhoods safe. Give our Citizens University a try, or tell a friend or family member. 

2016 program starts Monday, Jan. 25. If interested, please apply before Friday, Jan. 8.
