SFU Celebrates Constitution Days


SFU political science and law students recently celebrated the anniversary of the writing of the Constitution of the United States with SFU’s annual “Constitution Days.”

The annual event, managed by Political Science Professor Joe Melusky, seeks to inform students about how our national values developed and what it means to be an American citizen.

During this event over the last two weeks, there were numerous student-led activities. One of the more popular ones was the American citizenship test, a short quiz to see if you are knowledgeable enough to pass the nation’s citizenship exam.

This year’s event also featured U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Pesto as a guest speaker. Pesto’s discussion was titled “Suing the Government for Excessive Use of Force.” In addition to Pesto, several interns also spoke about their experiences working in various roles for the U.S. government.

One of the highlights of Constitution Days was Voter Registration Day on Sept. 22. Throughout this day, volunteer students helped their peers register to vote for the upcoming election.
