Samford will host approximately twenty-five students from area high schools Sept. 17 for a day of seminar discussions on some important texts in the development of the American Republic.

Students from Ramsay High School, Altamont, John Carroll High School, P.D. Jackson-Olin High School and other schools will take part in “Constitution Day” events organized by Samford’s University Fellows honors program, Samford Pre-Law and the Office of Diversity and Cultural Initiatives.

The Constitution Day Fellows will learn about those programs, read selections from the Federalist Papers and Abraham Lincoln’s Cooper Union Address and participate in discussions with University Fellows faculty and current University Fellows.

Constitution Day gives high school students an opportunity to experience college for a day and take part in seminar-style discussions with other high-achieving students.
