"Constitution and the Bible"
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Marvin Center Grand Ballroom
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 to discuss the Constitution and the Bible.
Free and open to the public. The Marvin Center Grand Ballroom is located on the 3rd Floor of the Cloyd Heck Marvin Center.
Directions? The Marvin Center building has entrances both on H Street between 21st and 22nd Streets, and on 21st Street between H and Eye Streets. If you are traveling by Metro to campus, exit at the stop marked Foggy Bottom/GWU on the Orange and Blue lines. As you exit the station, you will be at 23rd and I Streets; it is a 3 block walk to the Marvin Center. While GW recommends visitors take Public Transportation to campus, a visitor's parking garage is located between 23rd and 22nd Streets and H and Eye Streets. (While there are multiple decks on campus this is the only deck that accommodates visitors.) The visitor entrance is on Eye Street. The parking fee is $7 for one hour, $13 for two, and there is a $16 daily maximum.
This event was made possible with support from the Secular Student Alliance and the Freedom from Religion Foundation.
