Ellery Schempp, the primary student involved in the landmark 1963 Supreme Court Case of Abington School District v. Schempp which declared public school-sanction Bible reading unconstitutional, will be joining us on the campus of George Mason University discuss reasons for beliefs.

The presentation will be in the Johnson Center Meeting Room F on the 3rd Floor.

It is free and open to the public however there is a fee to park on campus. The Mason Pond Parking Deck is the closest available visitor parking to the Johnson Center. It can fill up during this time of day however - necessitating the use of another deck on campus further out - please plan your time accordingly. The rate is $2/hr with a maximum fee of $8. If you are taking the Metro, for $0.75 you can also take the CUE bus from the Vienna (Orange Line) Station to campus.
