IUP will launch its Fall 2010 Six O’Clock Series with
a presentation celebrating Constitution Day. “Just What Did They
Originally Intend?” will take place Monday, September 13, at 6:00 p.m.
in the Hadley Union Building’s Ohio Room.
The Six O’Clock Series, free and open to the community, offers
programs on current issues and promotes approaching familiar topics from
new perspectives. Coordinated by the Center for Student Life, the series features programs sponsored by a variety of campus organizations.
All programs will take place in the Hadley Union Building Ohio Room, except for the October 18 program, which will be held in the IUP Performing Arts Center’s Fisher Auditorium. Parking on campus is free after 5:00 p.m.
The ten programs offered during the Fall 2010 semester address issues ranging from civic engagement to career planning to counterterrorism and discussion of the Common Freshman Reader.
The first program, cosponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement and Student Leadership, marks Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution. This program offers a casual conversation with five of the Constitution’s authors–Ben Franklin, James Madison, Charles Pickney, Alexander Hamilton, and John Dickenson–and one of the most vocal opponents of the document, George Clinton. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions of the panel members portraying these individuals.
