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

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

Every year on September, or the weekday closest to it, we host a variety of events and programs to celebrate this day. This year, on September 16th 2016, at the Don Taft University Center, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm we will honor this day by passing out pocket-sized United States Constitutions along with a few other giveaways. Also, students will be able to sign the Constitution and the NSU Community will have a chance to learn more about their right to vote and register. Your knowledge of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights will bring you an understanding of how our nation was forged, and the people that made our liberty possible.
