PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Patriotic people across the nation are celebrating Constitution Day, including students and faculty at West Virginia University Parkersburg.

Students at WVUP were treated to a free pocket Constitution and trail mix as they entered the campus cafeteria around lunch time. Not only that, but they got to hear from a couple of speakers, including a veterans advocate who spoke about the military's oath to protect the Constitution and a criminal justice professor who talked about the Constitution’s role in criminal justice.

“We just wanted to point out how the Constitution is still relevant today, how it still has meaning even though it was written so many years ago. Just teaching our students what it's about and how it has an importance today.” Said Student Engagement and Activities Coordinator Samantha Suggs.
