Constitution Week at Creighton University

Some of the founding members of our chapter got together the Sunday before Constitution Week to build a full-size free speech wall. We picked up our materials from Home Depot and drove at a turtle’s pace (to make sure we didn’t look anything out the back) to one of our houses for all the saw work. Then, after retying all the knots that held our materials in the trunk, we drove to campus. We put together all the supports right behind the student center before putting it together with the supports on the top floor.  Then we left it in Skutt Student Center for a six days with a couple of markers and one question, “What should a government *guarantee* its people?”

Here is my favorite post, which was written by one of Creighton YAL’s newest members!

And much more!  You can see all of our pictures at Besides the above, you’ll see marriage proposals, testimonials of love, private censorship, and even a few drawings.
