Constitution Day

Constitution Day

On September 17, 1787, the Constitution was signed by 39 of the 55 Founding Fathers. President George W. Bush signed a bill on December 8, 2004 (public law 108-447) which designates every September 17 as Constitution Day.

Constitution Day promotes an understanding of the U.S. Constitution, an appreciation of this valuable document, and has been the foundation of the freedoms provided to all Americans.

This year, we will celebrate Constitution Day from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on September 18, 2017 in the Don Taft University Center. We will have a variety of activities honoring the Constitution.

Students will be able to sign the Constitution, receive giveaways, and take a picture with a life-size cut-out of George Washington. Students will also have the chance to register to vote during the event. We welcome the NSU Community to come out to our Constitution Day celebration.
