Florida Southern College’s Constitution Day celebration returns on September 16.
The event, hosted by freshmen political science students under the supervision of Dr. Bruce Anderson, is set to begin at noon in the Eleanor Searle Drawing Room inside Joseph-Reynolds Hall.
“Constitution Day is the celebration of the founding document of this wonderful Republic,” said Dr. Anderson, who is the Dr. Sarah D. and L. Kirk Mckay, Jr. Endowed Chair in American History, Government and Civics and a Miller Distinguished Professor of Political Science. “Since 2010, this event has been a major all-campus event here at FSC, planned, managed, and executed by the first-year students in the introductory classes in Political Science. This year’s event marks a return to our normal celebration, with in-person speakers, music, games, and food – all centered on the selected topic. This year’s topic is ‘The Bill of Rights.’ I am so proud of these students. Most have only been on campus for a few weeks, and they are thrown into the craziness of creating something like this. Its experiential learning in its purest form.”
Friday’s event will feature several guest speakers, as well as games, food, and activities.
Among the guest speakers will be:
The event will also feature performances by the Mocapellas and a presentation by the Florida Southern College Film Club.
“It’s not supposed to just be a lecture,” said freshman Sophie Grace Posick. “It’s a celebration.”
