Members of the Western Washington University community can get a look at what it takes to become a U.S. citizen at a free event Nov. 19 in the Underground Coffeehouse on campus.

"The Test: What it Takes To Become a Documented U.S. Citizen" will feature three speakers talking about the citizenship process. The presentations will be preceded by a special edition of Underground Coffee House Trivia Night focues on the U.S. citizenship test.

This event is presented by the AS Social Issues Resource Center.

Western played host to a U.S. citizenship naturalization ceremony earlier this month. WWU senior instructor Laura Carney, who teaches students in the Asia University America Program, became a U.S. citizen along with five others during the ceremony.
