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 17 (or the weekday closet to it), at the Don Taft University Center, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. volunteers will be passing out pocket United States Constitutions along with other giveaways to spread the celebration of the day. The NSU community also has the chance to learn even more about their right to vote. 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.
