Constitution Day is Tuesday, Sept. 17

Join us as we commemorate the formation & signing of the U.S. Constitution!

Aug 27, 2019

Constitution Day commemorates the creation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine men on September 17, 1787, which begins with "We the People"--a recognition of all people who are born in the U.S. or have become citizens through naturalization.

Help us celebrate Constitution Day here at ODU. Look for librarians at tables in the Griff and just outside Hamilton Hall during lunch on Tuesday, Sept. 17, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Browse through our Constitution booklets and answer 5 questions about the Constitution. Submit your completed questionnaire with all correct answers for a drawing. The price is a soft, fleece ODU blanket!
