Constitution Day recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is typically observed on September 17, the day in 1787 that delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia.

The Center for the Study of Public Choice and Private Enterprise will be hosting an event on September 15 where students will be recreating the Constitutional Convention of 1787. They will assume the role of a representative at the convention and participate in guided discussion, debates, and votes on developing structures for a new government and a new constitution. The Libraries will be handing out pocket constitutions and other materials at the event. Learn more about the event and how to register here.
