Upcoming Events
  • September 17, 2014 Constitution Day William Peace University is delighted to invite members of the community to our annual Constitution Day! Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is a  Federal holiday established in 2004 recognizing the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. September 17 marks the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787 in Philadelphia. The law establishing this holiday was created with the passage of an amendment by Senator Robert Byrd to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004. Before this law was enacted, the holiday was known as "Citizenship Day". In addition to renaming the holiday "Constitution Day and Citizenship Day," the act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions, and all federal agencies, provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day. In May 2005, the United States Department of Education announced the enactment of this law and that it would apply to any school receiving federal funds of any kind. (Note: This holiday is not observed by granting time off work for federal employees.) More information will be forthcoming regarding special programming from the Office of Student Services and the Director of Student Activities. view Event

  • October 15, 2014 The Importance of Being Earnest William Peace Theatre presents Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Amy White. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, The Importance of Being Earnest is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. The play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Its high farce, humor and witty dialog have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play. TICKETS: $5 students / $10 Alumni, Senior Citizens, Faculty & Staff / $15 Adults SEATING: General Admission Purchase individual tickets online here. Purchase season tickets online here. view Event
