Signed on September 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution created a new government in the United States of America that persists today. Each year on September 17, we celebrate the vision and hope of the founding fathers. Please take some time from your day to reflect on the significance of this document and how much it impacts our lives.
You can read the text in full, find out more about this era in U.S. history, learn more about the men who created the Constitution, and take a quiz to test your Constitutional knowledge.
As an activity commemorating this day, the Financial Aid Office has placed pictures of seven founding fathers with facts about each in buildings A, B, F, H, I, J, and K. Learn a few facts about some of the founders and learn where things are on campus! Students who present the Financial Aid Office with a list of these seven founding fathers on Thursday, September 17, 2015 will receive a free gift (supplies limited).
