Constitution Day commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Held this year on Monday, September 17, Constitution Day provides opportunity for Americans to celebrate this important event by participating in activities in communities around the country. You can discover more about Constitution Day by visiting http://www.constitutionday.com/, and you can join in the celebration locally by taking part in happenings on campus.
The Department of Political Science will host a discussion on the topic “The Supreme Court, Judicial Review, and the Role of the Chief Justice.” Led by Drs. Joe DiSarro and Buba Misawa, the event will take place at 3:30pm in the Media Room. All students attending this event will receive a copy of the U. S. Constitution.
This year, the U. Grant Miller Library will be celebrating Constitution Day with both a traditional window display in the lobby and a Constitutional geocaching game. Starting September 17th, you will find coordinates and clues to geocache the Constitution on the Library’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/UGrantMillerLibrary) and at the Get Involved display in the Library. The entire campus is invited to join the fun, and all completed entries will receive $1 in Miller Money to use toward Library late fees. The grand prize, a $25 Max & Erma’s gift card, will be drawn from all the entries at Live @ the Library on September 21st.
