Students commemorate Constitution/Citizenship Day

GCU News Bureau

Thursday is Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, which commemorates the signing of the Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787, and efforts by many to become U.S. citizens.

GCU students take it seriously. Last spring, just before the pandemic, students launched the GCU Civics Club, which will initiate projects in the coming weeks at local libraries and schools.

“GCU students know and appreciate the importance of our Constitution and what it means to our republic and democracy,” said Kevin Walling, Chair of Justice Studies, Government and History in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

“The GCU Civics Club engages with the community to teach basic civic lessons to students in the K-12 system, with a focus on teaching from non-partisan perspectives about such subjects as free speech, equal protection and right to privacy.”

Bible Verse

"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:20)



Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
