Midland College celebrates the US Constitution

To commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787, Midland College will celebrate from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, September 18, with various activities that include a voter registration table coordinated by the Midland League of Women Voters and a Constitution Scavenger Hunt coordinated by the Midland College Government Department.

Students will begin the scavenger hunt at the Marie Hall Academic Building, 3600 N. Garfield, where they will pick up a pocket Constitution and their Scavenger Hunt “passports.” While there, they will also receive information about Constitutional amendments for voting and elections.

A virtual tour of Constitution Hall will be available in Room 105 of the Fasken Learning Resource Center (library) where students will learn about the Founding Fathers and efforts of the federalists and antifederalists. Research guides will also be available.

In the Scharbauer Student Center, Title IX Office, students will learn about due process amendments.

Finally at the Dollye Neal Chapel on the MC Campus, a QR code will be available for students to scan and learn about Freedom of Religion and the Establishment Clause.

Students must visit all areas and return their Scavenger Hunt passports to Room 151 of the Marie Hall Academic Building by 1 p.m. to be eligible for prize drawings.
