On Sept. 17, members of the Maryville College community will participate in “Know Your Constitution,” a fun and educational quiz game.
The event, which starts at noon in the Samuel Tyndale Wilson Center for Campus Ministry (CCM), is part of Maryville College’s observance of the 225th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution.
“We’ll read together through the Preamble and then try to better understand the rest of the text by engaging the document through this game show format,” said Dr. Doug Sofer, associate professor of history at Maryville College. Sofer is co-hosting the event, along with Dr. Mark O’Gorman, associate professor of political science at Maryville College. “We’ve tried to put together some questions that will not only test people’s general knowledge of the Constitution but get them to think a little more deliberately about the implications of these founding principles of our republic.”
