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 noon–1:00 p.m. on September 17, 2018 in the Don Taft University Center Spine and again that night from 5:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m. in the Flight Deck Multipurpose Room.

We will have a variety of activities honoring the Constitution. Students will be able to participate in Constitution themed activities as well as have the chance to register to vote during the event. Additionally, later that night we will be having a trivia event. There will be free food and giveaways from 5:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m. partnered with the SLCE Office for their Diversity in Action Series. We welcome the NSU Community to come out to our Constitution Day celebration.
