Celebrate freedom of speech during Chalk Day

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

By Katherine Garcia


In appreciation of the right to free speech guaranteed in the First Amendment as part of National Newspaper Week, this college will celebrate with Chalk Day from noon-2 p.m. today.

Grab a piece of chalk and make your mark on the brick walkways of the mall between Loftin Student Center and chemistry and geology.

The college community is welcome to use the walkways — but not the sides of buildings — as their canvas and write or draw what they wish to express.

Although profanity is protected under the First Amendment, its use on walkways is not encouraged. As an institution of higher education, vocabularies are expected to be richer.

The free event is sponsored by this college’s student chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and The Ranger staff.

For more information, call The Ranger newsroom at 210-486-1773.
