Saint Anselm College students celebrate Citizenship Week

The New Hampshire Institute of Politics and the Kevin B. Harrington Student Ambassador's Civic Engagement Committee are hosting Citizenship Week Sept. 11 - 18. Various events will take place that focus on the American Constitution, citizenship, and democracy.

The Civic Engagement Committee, led by co-chairs, Saint Anselm students Brian O'Connor '16 and Brandon Pratt '18, works to develop students' citizenship skills by planning nonpartisan programs to help students register to vote, learn about issues, volunteer, and turn out at the polls.

Beginning on Friday, Sept. 11, C-SPAN's 2016 Campaign Bus arrived at the Institute for public tours and interactive demonstrations. The Institute also hosted the second annual national anthem sing-along. Read the full story on the college blog »

In addition to O'Connor and Pratt, this year's committee involves Liam Anderson '17, Cody Aubin '18, Ben Bossi '18, Tim Brogan '16, Patrick Derenze '17, Nicole Landry '17, Sybille Legitime '18, Rebecca O'Keeffe '18, Nicholas Petromelis '16, Stefan Skalinski '18, Leah Stagnone '18, and Maria Turner '16.
